Hey there! F16's available in Gnome, KDE, LXDE, and XFCE spins, all four of which seem like they'd be pretty good spins, TBH, but what if they had an Openbox or command-line spin of it?

Quick note--take a look at the posting rules, as this skirts double posting (referring to the later posts in your other thread), and while I suspect you figure it will go in a different direction than the other (which does have PCBSD and Gnome in the subject line), the context is covered in the later posts--best bet, in my VERY humble opinion, in this case, would be to PM a mod (they're listed in bold in the who's online thing) and ask if they could move those posts in the other thread, discussing openbox, here.

That's just my opinion of course, you may feel that they are different enough threads to not do that.

It'll most likely go in a different direction than the other thread. The other thread was aiming for a Fedora vs. PC-BSD comparison, this is mainly aiming for a Fedora spin what-if.

Hey! It's called a minimal install. Add X and openbox and you're off and running.

No worries, my scripts shall become the cli spin ;)
And its still a long way to go...

EDIT:
Besides, if you installed LXDE spin, you ALREADY CAN choose to start an Openbox session.
