That was my plan. Sorry for not popping in earlier, I have just subscribed to this list after receiving Bernie's message. Basically it should not be to hard to get Openbox working: * Window decoration can be turned of. I guess this is what we want for most windows. * Supports window matching rules: default windows -> fullscreen + no decoration dialogs -> centered, on top, ... * I already have the OLPC specific keyboard shortcuts from the work I did with LXDE * It can be started with different config files I'm going to work on this, help and comments welcome.
