Manjaro Linux Openbox Lite 0.8.4
Distributed as Live DVDs for mainstream architectures
The Lite edition of Manjaro Linux Openbox is available for download as a Live CD ISO image for the 32-bit architecture, and a Live DVD ISO image for 64-bit hardware platforms.
Boot screen a la openSUSE Linux
It is a known fact that Manjaro uses a boot screen a la openSUSE Linux, despite the fact that it is derived from the Arch Linux operating system. From the boot menu, the user can start the live environment with free or non-free drivers, boot from the first disk drive, view detailed hardware information and perform a memory test.
The graphical desktop is not lightweight, but includes less apps
Don’t expect it to be more lightweight, because it’s not. The main emphasis of Manjaro Linux Openbox Lite is on the software collection, as it includes less applications than the main Manjaro Linux Openbox edition.
As such, it only comes with the Viewnior image viewer, Leafpad text editor, Thunar file manager, LXTerminal, XTerm and UXTerm terminal emulator, Bulk Rename batch file renaming tool, Geany IDE, GParted partition editor and Parcellite clipboard manager.
As you can see, there’s no web browser, email client, audio or video player, chat client, torrent downloader, and many other essential applications.
The truth is that Manjaro Linux Openbox Lite was an one time only operating system, released along with version 0.8.4 of the Manjaro Linux operating system but no longer developed. Therefore, you strongly suggest to grab the Openbox edition of Manjaro right now from Softpedia at http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System/Operating-Systems/Linux-Distributions/Manjaro-Linux-Openbox-95830.shtml.
