Hi guys, just thought I'd write a little something to introduce myself since you might start seeing me lurking around these parts...
I'm a Software Engineering student (well, that's debatable considering the amount of procrastinating and slacking my life consists of, although it is those two aforementioned attributes that led me here in the first place!) and I ever since I got my first Macbook back in the old days of...'07, I got a taste of UNIX and didn't look back.
In fact I almost find it insulting most of my time spent at university is on Windows...
Anyway, I've dabbled with ubuntu and fedora over the last few years (I'm 20, by the way), and now I've built up some kind of profeciency towards Linux I started looking around elsewhere, and came across this distro.
I love the styling of the OS and the website, love the tight community vibe I get from these forums and you know what?
I love it so much I'm even going to sell my iPhone 4 for a Netbook and run this OS from boot as opposed to a virtual machine.
Anyway, that's enough rabbling on from my part, i'm going back to conkyrc for the time being!
Welcome to #!
Good to see dedicated users, and very nice of you to write a bit about yourself. You get a bonus point from me for selling the iPhone.
Have fun configuring the system and don't forget to share your work @Screenshots & Artwork
Great intro vyper, procrastinate as much as you want, #! works fast, so you `ll catch up. Welcome to these very forums, good of you to join us. Have fun while procrastinating!
#!, all else is but a shadow!
hi vyper, welcome to the community! don't lurk too much, if you don't know how to contribute anything when it comes to techy questions or tips, just hang out in Off-Topic all day
hi vyper91 welcome to Crunchbang.
just out of interest what university are you at?
And my uni has 5 different labs across campus with linux machines,. The lab in my department runs ubuntu 10.04 LTS, they still dont wanna switch to 12.04 cause it would mean having to install and configure gnome class, and remove unity.
And crunchbang runs amazingly well on my netbook, if you are planning in getting an Asus or Acer netbook then check out something called Jupiter Power manager, this will squeeze every last little bit of life out of the battery, which in some cases gives 5-8% more operating time than the equivelant windows OS that comes pre-installed. And if you combine that with cpufreq-utils your gonna be seeing real efficiency
