I've been a debian/ubuntu user for quite a while and I've tried several of the variants of ubuntu. I tried fluxbuntu, but they don't seem to be keeping up with it, it's still at 7.10. But so far I love crunchbang (I always thought that #! was shabang). I haven't switched to it as my primary distro yet, but if everything works out, I will.
Welcome to Crunchbang ewl I to had plans to just try out CrunchBang but switched to it as my main OS after only a couple of days. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am.

Hi ewl Welcome to the forums.
If you do decide to switch, do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to help out.
Regarding the #! crunchbang/shabang thing, shabang.org was already taken So I found an alternative. Apparently the character # was named differently depending on location. Xerox and CMU referred to it as the crunch sign. It is a little ambiguous, but I do not mind
ewl -- welcome to the community. Look forward to seeing you on the boards.
omns -- I was under similar circumstances -- contemplating a move to Intrepid Ibex, Fedora 10 (very briefly), and Linux Mint 6 (when it's fully released), and stumbled onto Crunchbang, which offered more than I could have conceived of. I switched over last night and don't see myself changing anytime in the near future.
corenominal -- Crunchbang is an awesome name. Much more unique than shabang. It works.
So far so good. I'm looking for the type of glitches that I came across in some other ubuntu based distros. For example in fluxbuntu, I could never get 3d graphics acceleration working, but that wasn't a problem with crunchbang. It seems to have all the functionality of ubuntu with a lot less overhead. I had a little problem getting cups started (I talk about that in a post to the help forum) but that was a glitch with Intrepid. So far so good. If I come across anything, I'll let you know.
