I’ve been playing around with OB in a VM for a few weeks on my personal laptop and made the switch to bare metal a few days ago. I want to thank the Devs and everyone else for a great out of the box OB config. I’m keeping Gnome on my family desktop, but made the switch to OB on my laptop and couldn’t be happier. My laptop hardware specs aren’t terrible, a Haswell Lenovo L440, including 8G RAM and SSD, but OB is so simple, light, configurable, and speedy. PCManFM is a great file manager as well.
I’m not a fan of Numix icons and switched to Moka. I played around with tint2 a bit, increasing icon size and opacity, but otherwise everything is near perfect out of the box with minimal tweaks necessary. Thanks again to the Antergos OB Devs.
