I just got bored having the same setup on my main computer and the laptop, so I decided to try a new DE, being it Openbox. After I installed a barebone Debian netinst and put OB on top of it I realized I'm too lazy to fuck once again with setting it up from scratch. Last year somebody on a linux reddit told me that a spinoff called Crunchbang has a nice little community, checked out the live cd and got with installing it. Damn, I was really surprised a niche distro derivative can be done so well ("less is more" with nice defaults), Phillip did a decent job, kudos.
I dig the idea of the post-install script, very friendly. I actually have a simple install.txt file with lots of "apt-get install -yfm" for my webdev needs and it looked like it's a better solution to the same problem. When I got to the VCS part I was like yay, then when it asked for LAMP I expected next points being Python, Ruby and other DBs stacks, but well, I am disappoint. I think it would be awesome if the cb-welcome got extended to include some other stacks like Python + pip + virtualenv + db drivers, other dbs like Postgresql, MongoDB, things every dev uses like memcached, maybe some popular libs, DB GUIs, etc. It could really be *the* Debian spinoff for webdevs. There are probably a lot of programmers of various technologies here, so we could help build some default stacks.
I haven't decided yet whether I like Debian+XFCE or #!+Openbox more, so probably will keep both for some time.

I understand where you're coming from, and the coolest thing about the distro is minimalism from the get-go, allowing you to work your way to whatever you want installed.
