I was using or trying to use Mandrake on my computer for like a week, but I gave up and went back to windows. I need to go take a class on how to use a Linux OS or something because its just so different from windows since I'm so use to it.

Its the same for any long-time windows user making the switch. But believe me when I say change is good. I recommend you download and burn a Knoppix LiveCD. Just stick the CD in your computer when you turn it on and you can boot into Linux without ever installing it on your system. Knoppix has great auto-hardware detection and is good to have around if Windows suddenly won't boot one day (seems to happen a lot. :roll: ).

You really need to get your eyes checked, he said it was windows not linux. Linux looks nothing like windows.

I KNOW!!! But his desktop looks like Fluxbox. I used Fluxbox, so i know what it looks like, i'm not just guessing. And that looks nothing like windows and doesn't sem to act like windows either.

hehe, the only thing windows about those comps is that its ntfs, asides that it uses nothing windows related. The gui is blackbox, they have a windows version now, I got an old version and modded the source so it would work like i wanted it to. Yeah my personal comp uses dual monitor and windows, but my others comps have solaris on one, gentoo on two.
I dont really find that resolution too high, i wanted to make it 3200 x 1200 but its at 2560 x 1024 right now which is readable. I dont have any good wallpapers for the higher one so I left it at this. My gentoo has a resolution of like 2048x1538, thats pwn resolution
I wish they had fluxbox for windows ^^

What the hell is blackbox? And furthermore, why would I need it? I think I've a pretty good set up there. My system stats, my winamp, my KoF.

Uh, the Graphical User Interface of Linux... is.. what ever the heck you want it to look like.

Eg: http://www.xpde.com/shots.php

That there looks pretty much like Windows XP.. but, it's Linux.. And of course.. if you look around for FVWM2 screenshots, you'll see that you can much get a WIndows XP, 95, etc look as well.

The Linux DE is whatever you want it to be. Use one of the many already out there, or make your own from scratch.

Directly answering your question, BlackBox is a Window Manager (WM) for X11 type servers. Simply put, it's one of the desktop environments/ways you can manage your windows on the Linux platform.

And as xargon already mentioned, there _is_ a blackbox shell replacement for Windows. That's probably what was in the screenshot. Give it a google, and you'll find it.

Lol... same here... only thing that's changed on my desktop since my last screenshot is the wallpaper, and the fact that I have two gkrellm windows running now... One for this computer, and one monitoring my headless gentoo box. Hmm.. the "desktop" on that box isn't very interesting anyways... there is none lol. haha, nothingness!

But anyways.. if I ever get around to changing any window decorations... I may post again... I dunno. Or, maybe it's been so long since anyone's seen my desktop, so I'll post my current one anyways. ? hmm

Hrmm... i got a new desktop for my laptop... lineage 2 theme... but my laptop is off right now... and i'm too lazy to turn it back on now. Well, you'll have a new screenshot from me tomorrow.

And thank you to rcxAsh and xargon for helping with my error of identifying. I indeed knew that blackbox had been ported to windows... but i like the look of XP. I don't think i'll be changing it.

LOL!! That's hilarious lol.

Yup, I've been using Gentoo for over a year now. Just like a good novel (or anime for that matter), I can't put it down.

Whoah; didn't know you make it a 75% perfect copy of Windows (and that 25% left out includes all the bugs and cheats). Have to remember that next time someone argues about "needing to teach the staff to use it."
