BlackBox -- light for those on a diet

Author: JT Smith

LinuxToday.com.au posts: "The necessity of running a slower Linux machine at work than I do at home has led me to explore the world of
smaller, faster window managers. FVWM belongs in that category - I had a brief love affair with it's simplicity before
deciding it was too ugly for anyone but a man with two-cm thick glasses to use - that or most of my old Uni lecturers :)

Next, on the advice of a friend, I turned to BlackBox. BlackBox is a window manager which has been developed primarily
by a guy named Brad Hughes, with the stated single premise of minimalism. And minimalist BlackBox is! However it will
probably fulfill most of the requirements that most people use a window manager for."
