Crunchbang is perfect... but I am total newbie!!! (SOLVED)

Hi guys, I was using Ubuntu and with the updates/upgrades the system on my netbook was very slow...( Atom Intel 1.6 Ghz CPU, 1GB DDR3 RAM, Intel Mobile GMA intergrated GPU and 320GB HDD). Well, last night i found searching on google the amazing Crunchbang, it really took me... I did the format on my netbook and it was so smooth and fast. Then I realised that it takes only 100MB from RAM... That was the first shock... But the other shock is that I only know how to use the terminal. All the other staff like personalizing your OS and etc... was helpfull for me from the graphics environment. Ok i know that Crunchbang is minimalistic and that I must learn it by my own but I am a student and i want to learn that's why i love it... The question is this: " Is there any manual or something like that to help me to unsterstand fully the #!?". And please forgive me if I had done any spelling mistake, I am from Greece...

The openbox site is good for learning, so too these forums as they are one of the only openbox debian specific places. The Debian Administrators Handbook is good, but most of all we learn by doing round here so just have a go at customizing/breaking your machine somehow and we will gladly learn with you.

Can say with complete ( 100%) confidence) that everyone started as a newb ... New to gnu/nix ... somewhere. You are @ the manual right now ... The community and the forum here. Think ... well more like know, is an encylopedia of #! and Linux. With this + google + time to experiment, in whichever order you prefer. You won't be a newb for long ...


Vl#!! wink


Ps ... And welcome to the crunchiness btw. smile Ok am gone ... songs to listen to folks.


Some common cbiz abbreviations. This will save me time and yet @ same time tell folks what the babble is supposed to mean.

Vll ! = ( Viva la gnu/Linux !)    Vl#!! = ( Viva la #! !)    Last but not least, UD ... OD ! = ( Use Debian ... or die !) tongue

Thanks for your hospitality but what do you mean when you say that your hovercraft is full of eel?  hmm ... And please write in English... angel I don't want any problems with the admin of the forum... I am just saying that I am from Greece so the other users speak to me as more simple as they can... By the way, nice to meet you!!!  big_smile

Hey cool I'm Greek too! Though, my Greek sucks. Just a little comedy, sorry no intention to offend. Parents keep trying to teach me. Welcome friend!

Apparently the eels thing is from an old Monty Python sketch.  We're a rough and rowdy bunch here, but we mean well. monkey
