OS: Crunchbang Waldorf (image crunchbang-11-20121015-amd64.iso, Wheezy, 64 bits).
Hardware: Dell Inspiron 1525, 2 Gb RAM.
Quick, without anything to report. So successful that was almost boring.
Network, video, wacom tablet support, everything went super smooth.
Additional install scripts (dropbox, google chrome, etc.) worked their magic flawlessly.
And runs fast. >:)
A few timings in seconds (both with Openbox):
Application Ubuntu 12.04 Crunchbang Waldorf
inkscape 30 8
java CASE 11 4
geany 2 1
In case anyone is doubting, just try this:
. with rsnapshot backup to a usb external disk.
. Install Waldorf.
. restore backup.
. customize (optionally).
Potential usability improvement:
* during the install, in the partition method selection, there is no information to help the user to make a decision about which of the first 3 methods to choose (plain, with LVM, or the other third guided option that don't remember what was).
* in the default theme, sometimes it is difficult to locate the focus (like in the scroll bars) or the state (like the check boxes that looks almost the same with or without the check).
What other info can I report? Just ask.
Thanks Corenominal and all the rest of the community that helped me with this decision.
Somehow, even if I'm new here, just feel like I'm back at home. :-)
I installed Waldorf again this morning before work (after thoroughly destroying my Slackware system last night). It took a little over 7 minutes to install! I had hardly finished making my coffee by the time it was ready for the smoke test. the dist-upgrade was another story, it took nearly two hours to download and dpkg crashed in the middle of upgrading the kernel and scrambled everything, but once I figured out the problem it was a quick fix. Now everything's running smoothly.
Enjoy your new OS and welcome home to #!
