Is there a category for useless software? Blackbox was updated to allow one to turn off the slit and such and salvage 100% of the memory. -- Sy / (talk) 00:37, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Hackedbox predates this updating of Blackbox I believe. I think Fluxbox probably renders Blackbox obsolete in its turn, and maybe Openbox does too.

I believe there's still a place for "good enough" software which does all that certain users require without the more advanced features that others want, and there's also a compilation problem sometimes with newer releases. For example in some distros I've run I've been able to compile Blackbox 0.65 successfully but not Blackbox 0.70.
