I don't think that SalentOS will attract a lot of users, but I took a look at the latest release -- SalentOS 2.0 ("Neriton") and I'd say it's one of the best Stable-based distros out there.

Website: http://www.salentos.it/
At DistroWatch: https://www.distrowa...bution=salentos

This Stretch-based release ships loaded with useful tools for live sessions. Installation was quick and easy. The default Openbox setup is fine for getting right to work; I ended up changing everything around to suit my own tastes, as any self-respecting Openbox user would do, and I added a handful of my favorite apps.

I'm a big fan of distros that are based on Debian Stable. There aren't many of them, and they tend to come and go. I hope that SalentOS can hang around for awhile; I found it to be a pleasant surprise, excellent for live sessions and also great as an installed system. Uses mainly Stretch repos along with one SalentOS repo. I put it on one of my computers in a dual-boot setup with BunsenLabs "Deuterium", which takes a different approach than SalentOS but is another fine Stable-based Openbox distro (still waiting for the Stretch-based release of that one).

Well the default set up is nice to look at.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Looks like a nice release. SalentOS appears to be a good alternative to BunsenLabs. Some might see it as a better alternative.

Both BunsenLabs and SalentOS give you Debian Stable with only Openbox, by way of a quick installation, and ready-to-use. Both have good live sessions. BL is geekier (isn't that part of its appeal? lol); SalentOS is prettier and more GUI-centric.
