I just installed #! on my netbook, so far, so good. I had been using Xubuntu for the last year and a half, which was fine, until Amazon Instant Video mysteriously stopped working. Upgrading to 11.10 didn't fix it, so I decided to try out crunchbang's livecd; surprisingly, *everything* worked, wireless, flash, webcam, special laptop keys. It also feels a bit zippier.
I'll probably switch over my desktop next.
Keep up the great work!
welcome to #! neal, just switch, you will not regret it! have fun!
#!, all else is but a shadow!
May the Kernel be with you!
Welcome to #!
I have a netbook, a 32-bit laptop, and a 64-bit laptop, all running Crunchbang. None of them is "slow" but the 64-bit Toshiba rips through jobs like video conversion using Handbrake!
