I found my way back to Crunchbang after a short stint on ZevenOS & Xubuntu. Just something about Crunchbang keeps me coming back. Good work on #!Sa2, running real smooth so far.Dawg:

Good evening, fellow CrunchBang enthusiasts -My primary system is an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop, currently running Xubuntu 12.04. Xubuntu has been my main distribution since July of this year; I ended up using it after browsing DistroWatch hoping for a non-Debian Xfce-based distribution.Xubuntu has been working all right for me, mostly - up until today.

Before this I was fed up with the lack of freedom of Windows, tried Ubuntu, but still had an itch that needed to be scratched. Somewhere along the way I came across Crunchbang.
Just installed CrunchBang on CR-48, went very smooth, and this is my first install on CrunchBang.I must say I am very impress with #!, excellent work guys.Everything works great, and the performance is quite smooth, I even got transparency to work correctly.I'll put up some sort of Guide for installing #! on CR-48 if any one is interested.
This is kind of a strange home-coming. While I've occasionally checked the crunchbang site and forums, it's been years since I actively used it (ie. 8.10 release).Back then, I wasn't thrilled about the direction that Ubuntu was taking, so I bailed ship for Debian a little before corenominal's announcement that crunchbang would be doing the same.
Hey, I have used #! for about 2 years on my Asus EEE PC 701 netbook. Started with hearing about cruncheee. Searched it, installed it and got used to using crunchbang. Crunchbang is nothing short but a work of art.
Hi thereI'm not new to linux, but I'm not adverse. I used to use linux quite a bit and eventually stepped away from it for a while. Coming back to linux, I decided to try out a new distro and happened upon crunchbang. I hope to learn from using this flavour of linux and to have a good time playing with it.
I'm from across the pond (USA) and I've played around with Linux since about 1995/1996. My first distro was Mandriva or it may have been called something else back then.I discovered CrunchBang back in 2009/2010 and immediately fell in love with it. I initially installed CrunchBang on an Asus EEE-PC and was amazed that practically everything worked right after installation.&nb
I'm actually dual booting with Antix MX-14, but I really missed Openbox and the look and feel of Crunchbang. I can't seem to fin any other distro similar to Crunchbang except for Puppy Linux and maybe Proteus.
My laptop, albeit capable of running Desktop Environments in the likes of KDE, has been happily humming along with CrunchBang at its whim. While I jump around distros a lot, I find myself coming back to #! every time. So to the developers of both Debian and CrunchBang, thank you so much for making such an amazing distro
