    Distro Monday: Presenting a largely negative review of BunsenLabs Linux Deuterium, a Debian-based distro with Openbox, tested on a laptop with Nvidia card and a dual-boot configuration, covering separate live session and installation, and post install use, including look & feel, network support - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, Samba printing, multimedia support - MP3 playback and HD video, convoluted install wizard, first-use configuration script, extreme difficulty with desktop customization, various quirks and problems, overall merit, and more. Have fun.

    This is a remake of #! as I'm sure you know.

    Their Openbox setup is quirky, I admit. The setup script is unusual, for sure. And it took some effort to learn how to edit all that stuff for configuring screen properties, menus, and so on. But I've come to love the minimality of it all. All menus are right-click. Conky is cool.

    But yeah, I just use it as a VM, so there isn't much to setup.
