PulpOS is a lightning fast, lightweight GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, featuring the Openbox Window Manager. Our mission is to bring you the best Openbox distro on the Internet.
We created PulpOS with customization and minimal design in mind to keep clutter out of your way so you can be as productive and engaged as possible. With PulpOS, you can easily keep your desktop looking as beautiful as it is fast, and since it uses the openbox window manager, you can catch up with your computer's speed and work as fast as it can, whether you prefer more keyboard shortcuts, more clicking, or both. PulpOS comes with a concise menu to remove all the clutter, and a graphical method to easily edit the menu, change GTK2 themes, GTK3 themes, icon themes, and much more.

We made sure to pack PulpOS with a wide variety of software to suit the many needs we all have. We aim to provide superior software choices - in PulpOS, you can be sure that only the best software around is included.

Quick-Start Guide
PulpOS by default has a 1px border on all four sides of the desktop configured in Openbox. This border allows you to interact with the desktop while running a full-screen program by simply dragging your cursor to the edge of the screen. You can also middle-click the desktop to view all the workspaces.
