    Monara, tam teşekküllü bir Debian tabanlı Openbox masa üstü dağıtımı. Bu dağıtımı kullanmak için özelleştirme dışında pek bir şey gerekmiyor. Ayrıca sorunsuz çalışması kullanıcları memnun edecektir. Üstelik sistem kullanımı çok düşük olması zayıf makinelerde de idealdir. Kurulum ve kullanım kolaylığı sayesinde yeni-eski herkes rahatlıkla kullanabilir. Geliştiricilere teşekkürler :) Monara is a full-fledged Debian-based Openbox desktop distribution. Nothing much to do except use customization to use this deployment. It will also please users to work smoothly. Moreover, it is also ideal for weak machines where system usage is very low. Thanks to the ease of installation and use, everyone new-old can easily use. Thanks to the developers :)
