i'm a recent convert to Linux though i had a brief brush with it (fedora) in an inadequate Architecture & Operating Systems class the one semester (back in 2008ish) i went to DeVry thinking i was going to be a programmer...
then i went to art school and got into Pure Data. which got the whole open source thing rolling for me. led me to Xubuntu which i was rockin this past year. i'd somehow heard about CrunchBang and tried it out before Xubuntu but was absolutely intimidated. Xubuntu helped ease me into things. so a month ago my interest in CrunchBang was again piqued, so i came back and got it. i got it. and i love it. and now i guess that Linux tinkering has become a new hobby/addiction.
I travel the mystical, relatively unknown regions of consciousness, all before breakfast. After breakfast? Coffee.
