Hello, new Crunchbang user here. My only experience with linux was messing with livecds a long long time ago.
Since Dota 2 is being ported to linux soon, I almost see no reason to stick with windows for much longer, perhaps I will dual boot. I fell in love with crunchbang for its minimalist approach, and after installing it, almost everything works, I'm impressed. I much prefer speed and snapiness over fancy 3d effects and shit. I just seem to be having problems setting my resolution so I made an account to take advantage of that help section. I'll probably toil around with it some more since I hate asking for help but I do feel like I'm running in circles lol. I hope crunchbang doesnt become too much of a challenge for me.
