Hello all!

Hi everyone,

I'd like to start off by thanking the forum users for their invaluable help, even if they don't know it.

After having tried Ubuntu (too slow) and Lubuntu (too fiddly), I decided to give CrunchBang a whirl based on some very positive reviews on Distrowatch. And initially I found it a bit of a challenge - but the speed and agility that this lightweight system provides is incredible. It's honestly like a new system.

I've only been in the Linux world for a few months, having been a lifelong Windows user, but following a dodgy partition table problem I decided to take the leap, and haven't looked back.

Once I got CrunchBang up and running, I needed to get some help and information on a few subjects - not all of which are resolved yet! However, I've found that the people on here give great advice and write useful comments, and so thanks to all of you.

I'm running a small HP Mini 210 with 1Gb of RAM, and under Windows 7 it ran like hell, and now... wow. Love it.

Outside of that, I'm a English teacher living in France (so would be up for any translation help I can provide), and a Browncoat...

Re: Hello all!

Hey, Iowa.  Fellow humanist here -- also in Iowa!

Welcome to the serene world of efficiency and organization, OP.  #! is the best.  I went from PC/DOS to DOS 5.0 to Win9x to Mandrake, then immediately Debian, back in the day.  This distro combines the rocksolid awesomeness of Debian and access to development repositories downstream from the testing branch (if that's how you roll) with the thin but hardly threadbare Openbox environment.

I always say there's one thing I want from my box: instant, unhesitating obedience, every single time.  I have found my Eldorado in this distro since I went to #! statler/squeeze, and am now running waldorf. 

I love the power of editing isolated parameters in vim or nano.  Truth be told, what need is there for a GUI to act as a superfluous intermediary? Use your noggins kiddoes.  These are computers -- instruments.  Ought we not know how to use them? Isn't that exciting, even?

I haven't had this much fun using my box in ages.

Search the forums first, and ask second, but between the two, there's very little that can't be resolved here. Of cousre, it helps to have people smarter than I to ask the questions of... smile
