I'm a Windows developer trying lean new skills. Today I install it in my desktop PC a Crunchbang (after Fedora and Trisquel).
My intention is to eliminate distractions and concentrate in programming. So Crunchbang minimalist environment seem ideal. ¿Some advice?
(Sorry for my English)
Resist conky et al
what dura said, just program away, if you start configuring/tweaking...you will be lost...welcome to #!forums...
#!, all else is but a shadow.
I'd advice a bare bones editor like GEdit instead of the Geany IDE, (which is very minimal too, but Gedit is even more minimal)
for some little tweaks the Gedit-plugins could be nice. If you go that route.
what languaege(s) you want to work in ?
