Also there's customized Conky system monitor, transparent urxvt -terminal and Gens/GS r7 which is running Sonic 1 Megamix.

If you want to test FluxBox easily I'd suggest you to test FluxBuntu or Arch Linux and install FluxBox in it.

I'm curerntly trying to replace openbox window manager with Compiz.
Although I can use some compositing effects with openbox those all are just eye candy. :|
Compiz has "effects" that really makes desktop environment more user-friendly.

I've changed from Gentoo to Arch Linux and here's my current geeky desktop with lots of system stats in it (my system desktop).

Am I the only one here with a basic windows desktop, with things I use as big icons dotted around my screen, a background and a toolbar at the bottom? I mean surely this layout is much simpler and makes more sense? I mean do you really need all of those numbers and text everywhere? How do you do anything?

That would confuse me too much :L
