August 2002, but I doubt you'd find much on OpenBox 3.0 if you went back much
further ;-)

Which is just as a good a way as any, since I always have them open anyway.

I do have a full-featured[0] menu, but since I have most apps under short-cuts
I rarely use it.

I remember having that problem to, but I stopped installing anything GNOME after
I tried installing gno3dtet from source and realised how many dependencies it

(In my naivity I didn't check if it was perhaps only the single game) I might
have been witholding myself stuff over nothing ;-)

Writing a conversion thingie you mean?

[0] Full featured compared to what I use, I guess it's still pretty slim/small
    compared to some peoples, especially users of an OS I shan't name
