    It's a nice system for doing things on your own. One thing that bugged me was the naming. I thought "star-morbius-1.0-fb-64-2017APR15.iso" meant Framebuffer instead of fluxbox, which is the most downloaded variation at the time of writing. Please consider changing that naming scheme.

    Great project! Kudos to the team.....I've been using Debian since "potato" and left with the onset of the GNOME 3 business; now I'm coming back. I'm using JWM and will slowly and thoughtfully add sources and apps to the build. This is a great thing I've done similarly where you delete the wm and de, get a basic "empty" shell, and rebuild, but it's sometimes difficult because of deps and whatnot; you've made this simple. Not necessarily for the beginner, but they'll eventually find their way - we all do. Thanks again - any chance we'll be seeing any docs soon? Cheers!

    Tried the openbox-version. Very nice. This image works well as both a minimal starting point for your own choices, or as a full-featured distro (if you install the app-selections you are offered from the welcome script). The contrib and non-free repos aren't enabled by default, so if you need that support for your hardware, just enable it in the sources.list. Also, it's based on Devuan and comes without Systemd. Refreshing. Everything works just fine, easy to install, easy to set up, and no issues at all for me. Love it.
