Just a little curious but what is your default de/wm that you run Crunchbang with? I run e17 with mine.
Os: Debian Sid
I used to run Openbox.
I'm so meta, even this acronym
Unless you are using Openbox you are pretty much just using Debian in any other environment. I used an Xfce netinstall for a long time but at the moment am enjoying CrunchBang's Openbox environment again
I used Statler with Xfce for the longest time, but a couple of weeks ago i installed Waldorf and have stuck with the default Openbox so far. When I'm in the mood for eye candy I use another system with E17 or Compiz but I like to keep my CrunchBang close to it's roots, clean and simple.
"Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time." Linus Torvalds
I am currently using OB with my #! install, and Fvwm with both Arch and Debian. For tiling I use i3 or scrotwm.
But I really dislike e17. All the focus on shiny shiny gets in the way of actually doing work on it, to my mind. (The fact that I like fvwm but don't see the point of fvwm-crystal perhaps gives you an idea of my opinion of unnecessary eye-candy, though )

on the outside looking in
Usually Openbox but sometimes ı use xfce

#!, all else is but a shadow!
May the Kernel be with you!
Awesome - tried several other tilers but awesome seemed friendlier and allows apps to have a titlebar if you want - which I do - ratpoison , Scrot etc didn't
Troll = not a fanatic
A lot of OB users. Figured the majority of #!'ers would have moved away from it for whatever reasons. It's nice to see.
Anyways I don't really have a default WM. I usually bounce around. But right now my main three are OB(basically the only traditional stacker that I use, tried the others but didn't like them as much as OB), Scrot, and Musca.
We are a nice, friendly community here and I hope we stay that way.
before that scrotwm was my main one. before that, xmonad. before that, openbox. ... having tried maaaaany many many.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
I appreciate what Crunchbang has done with Openbox... but as with most stacking window managers, I quickly miss the power and open-endedness of FVWM and change back.
The only one that truly tempted me was Sawfish.

Openbox, Xfce, and Awesome-wm
Ha ezt el tudod olvasni, biztosan nem vagy rövidlátó.
Xfce all the way. I had Statler Xfce on my computer for most of 2011, but left when I saw that the Xfce version was going to be discontinued. I spent the first half of this year looking for a distro I liked as well as Statler Xfce, but couldn't find one. So last week, I decided to install Waldorf -- and with installing Xfce and completely removing Openbox and everything associated with it. To quote Frank Sinatra, "I did it my way".
