Hello world!

Hey folks,
I am new to Crunch bang and like the minimalism. My family uses Debian and Ubuntu, so I have a bit of experience with Linux via gui and cmdline. I look forward to learning more about GNU/Linux now that the training wheels are off.

Yup, we like the command line. A starter course is here, if you'd like to explore...

Re: Hello world!

Cool, thanks. I am keeping my debian box as a fall back. So far most of the trouble shooting is the same.

Re: Hello world!

^ Then please ignore my earlier post. If you've got a Debian machine up and running, you don't need the basics again... smile

Re: Hello world!

So just an update to my Crunchbang experience. I recently wanted to explore Archbang, learn about pacman, packer, and the supposed speed and stability of Arch while being based of this lovely distro. After two days, of trouble shooting which was a learning experience as well as a zen test, I have the box up and running similar to the way that Cruchbang does out of the box. Keep in mind Archbang is inspired by this Crunchbang, but fails to implement openbox in the same fashion. For instance, the user has less access to the customization of the Desktop experience as well as a file dependency structure that is full of cluttered syn links. There is a bit more, like how Crunchbang can handle a 10 person video conference while using 700mb of ram while Archbang idles at 600 mb, About 30 percent cpu usage with #! and 70 with Archbang with said google-talkplugin. On #! my processors sat at about 75 percent while one Archbang they crested to 100 percent and experienced uneven balancing between the two. Ultimately, I feel that the Crunchbang community does a better job at providing an out-of-the-box minimal experience with great performance during even the most resource dependent of processes. To speak to actual community experience, those individuals of the Crunchbang community while few are fairly experienced in dealing with Debian based distros and there issues many of which #! has resolved. The Archbang community in contrast seems to be absent or lacking at best. Much of the community seems to be experienced Arch users who enjoy the minimal, yet highly customizable, environment Openbox provides while over looking the haphazard way which Lxde, xcfe and gnome utilities and programs are set into the system without providing away to change default applications.
This all said, the above rant was composed while using Archbang and downloading an iso of #!-10. Also, pacman and packer which access the AUR are both coolsville and the Debian family should think about packaging and submitting more to Debian or create our own #! user repo. Just a closing thought.
