http://crunchbanglinux.org – I am not very good with the command line - you might have guessed by the oodles of help I have had to ask for.So if I do not want to bother you guys then I download packages directly from a website, be it Skype (which I just downloaded..), Gimp, whatever.That is my guilty secret out in the open..:)So how do you prefer to download and how do you feel about doing it the other way?
