OpenBox is very much lighter on resources than the Gnome Desktop Environment but Gnome is the standard one we mostly all use for the extra functionality it offers ;)

I'm really glad you have got this sorted now :)
Congrats and regards from

Ooops, OpenBox is just a WindowManager, not a full DE isn't it? Lol, sorry i can see why gnome is needed too now. Also i forgot about all those people using the even more fully featured KDE with Kubuntu or the lighter Xfce in Xubuntu and there seem to be a few people switching to LxDE for an even lighter DE. There are a few other DEs but there seem to be thousands of WMs

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
