Hello, I have not installed crunchbang yet but I tried it, I am currently using slacko puppy on a usb but I will get a external hard drive and use crunchbang as my primary OS. Do you have any tips on what to do and not to do? I am just a normal computer user who likes customization and speed, nothing too advanced.Btw you guys are awesome, this is a great community.
can't you make some extra space on the hd and install crunchbang dual booting ubuntu? just to see if the mouse and wifi works, later just remove ubuntu...edit: oh and welcome to crunchbang happy community!

Does Crunchbang have a foundation currently or use SPI or some other party? Fundraise and grow local communities across the globe!Why?

Still relatively new to Linux, I want to learn as much as I can about this distribution. I'm tired of Ubuntu and hopefully will find this distribution to be simpler. Hopefully someone in the community can comment on the benefits of choosing CrunchBang, and even offer some advice or links to a newbie.
You may also be astonished to know crunchbang is a one man show. Corenomial does a phenomenal job with the distro, and the community does a stellar job supporting. Hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of us.
