SalentOS is an Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distribution that uses Openbox as window manager. SalentOS has been designed to embrace lightness (hence the choice of Openbox), but at the same time it maintains the completeness and features of Ubuntu. The system includes elements of GNOME and Xfce desktops.
"SalentOS" because it was decided to make a tribute to Salento by choosing to insert backgrounds that immortalize some of the beautiful landscapes, places and moments of this land. Enjoy your desktop, clean and simple!
Openbox guarantees lightness and elegance. "It uses the box visual style, while providing a greater number of options for theme developers than previous box implementations. Openbox is a highly configurable window manager. It allows you to change almost every aspect of how you interact with your desktop and invent completely new ways to use and control it. But Openbox can also be kept extremely simple, as it is in the default setup, meaning that it can suit just about anybody. Openbox gives you control without making you do everything."
Lightweight, Fast, Elegant
SalentOS is built to find the right balance between lightness and efficiency, so we decided to use Openbox with Gnome and XFCE softwares.
