BackBox Linux 1.05 released!

The BackBox team is proud to announce the release of BackBox Linux 1.05. BackBox Linux 1.05 features the following upstream components: Ubuntu 10.04, Linux 2.6.32 and Xfce 4.6.1

BackBox Linux now with FluxBox window manager!

The team is proud to announce the release of backbox-fluxbox package. This release aims to be lean and fast on your desktop. FluxBox should be able to run on older hardware allowing people with weak to mediocre machines to enjoy the awesomeness of BackBox Linux. During the development of this package, our goal was to achieve a very delicate balance between a minimalistic and an easy to use setup which we hope we have done. Now the menu is self-generated, no manual editing... Therefore you can install any tool simply with synaptic or apt-get and the menu will auto rebuild itself.
