Fluxbox is based around the coding, look and feel of Blackbox, a much-revered desktop of the past, but Fluxbox picks up where Blackbox left off. Adding usability enhancements, entirely new features and updating to newer standards, Fluxbox takes Blackbox into the 21st century.

If you have a couple of old Linux boxes sitting around, then you've got the makings of a supercomputer. Dust them off, install Secure Shell (SSH) and Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM), and start your complex algorithms.
Open source is about people as much as it is products and companies, but the role of individuals in establishing the open source industry is often overlooked given headlines like “IBM makes $100m investment in Linux”.
The first ever DistroWatch competition was a great success. Not only we received a large number of competition entries (nearly 200 in total), it also seems to have inspired great many attempts to try Ubuntu Linux as a real alternative to Windows. The winners are listed below.
