Reno desktop - awesomewm || ( openbox && xfce )

Reno is an evolution of my previous configuration, This time, this bad boy can fit 90% more configuration options, through the use of AWMTK2 (or RenoTK, never really decided on the name).

Through advancements in the science dark magic art of lua metatablery, AWMTK2 makes it possible to create complex and visually rich themes, while mainting relatively low memory footprint.

Thanks to the ethically questionable decision of employing JSON to Widget Layout conversion, this desktop allows for customization of panels, context menus, lock screens, and other widget containers of various sizes and shapes.
