When you want to make the most of your computer, you might think that buying a new computer is the best remedy, but this is not always the case. Instead, you need to look into software that will help you make the most of your system, no matter how sluggish it is now. Sometimes you just need to have a little help when you are on your computer, and sometimes that means you need to think outside of the box. With OpenBox applications, you can begin to create a computer that doesn’t make you want to throw it out the window.
What is OpenBox?
OpenBox is a window manager, specifically designed for the X11 windowing system. What the heck does that mean? What this means is that this software works to help you manage the windows you have open on your desktop. When you have many windows on your desktop, your computer will run harder than it normally does. In order to speed up the functionality of the windows so that each of the programs can work at their maximum capability and efficiency. Written in C++, the OpenBox system is able to run without any dependency on libraries outside of X11.
The Benefits of OpenBox
When you utilize the OpenBox system, you will be able to create a computer expreince that actually listens to what you ‘tell’ it. For example, when you are running more than one window and then you need to open another, this function will happen quickly, without reducing the functionality of the other windows. This is rarely the case with more computer systems. Most of the time, the first window will work well, but when other windows are opened, slowly the windows began to slow down and some might even crash in the process.
OpenBox wants to be able to help users:
- Have the access they need – When a user is able to access the programs they need when they need them, the user will be able to do what they want, when they want to do it.
- Enjoy a simple system – OpenBox is designed to be simple enough for anyone to use, computer geek and non-computer geek alike.
- Make the most of their computer – If you think you need a new computer, it might be better to look into OpenBox to see if you just need a better windows manager.
- Improve their work efficiency – Those who are able to use as many windows as they like can work more efficiently.
When you create a better running system, you control your computer. Your computer doesn’t have to control you anymore.
With OpenBox, you might just feel like your computer is on your side again. These systems are especially important when your work requires that you perform multiple tasks at the same time. And with the OpenBox system, you can create a better performance for everyone who uses the computer – well, anyone that you actually let touch your computer.
