Okay, so one of my Firefox instances just crashed
and all I got from the shell where I opened it was
I guess I'll just put up with this until I install
And now I'm wondering what my desktop options are
on Ubuntu. I like Fluxbox for it's light, no
nonsense look and feel. I really don't need, and
frankly get annoyed, at bouncing mouse icons, etc.
If it looks too much like Windows I get fussy.
Any suggestions? I would assume I can run Fluxbox
on Ubuntu. Is this correct?
