|A new Blackbox site was recently created to gap the void left by the demise of the three Blackbox sites that kept the BB for Windows community together since 2001: lostinthebox, bb4win and boxshots. Old, wise and respected figureheads that owned those sites, like tres’ni and NC-17, have gone on to other pastures and although Blackbox remains a fond memory, it’s all in the past for them. However, they did bless this new site with their best wishes for success.
This new niche, www.blackbox4windows.com combines the characteristics of all three sites into one including news, forum, downloads, uploads and live chat.
Created by yours truly with the help of my good friend adni18, one of the most prolific Windows artists and skinners around, the site aspires to become, among other things, a repository of Blackbox styles, themes and builds (core and plugins) and a vehicle for developers and users to get together and bring Blackbox to the next step of its existence.
Blackbox4Windows is hoping you’ll join us – not only you Blackbox style authors and users, but also wallpaper and icon artists, since there is a special section destined to help users decorate their desktops. There is also a niche for Linux Blackbox/Fluxbox/Openbox users AND a gallery where you can show off your screenshots, your themes and your wallpapers.
Come over, folks, you are all needed for a new start in the world of, perhaps, the best shell replacement around.
