Re: why Linux?

I started running Linux because my Windows Vista box was so sloooooooooooow.  Someone suggested that I try Linux, and for about six months I dual booted.  After wiping Windows on that machine, I never looked back.  Do I still use Windows?  Yes, on my work machine, but even my Windows experience has gotten better because of the knowledge that I have gained by using Linux.  Just using Linux has opened my eyes to a ton of possibilities.  (All of that being said, I still get VERY frustrated waiting on my Windows box to do something that #! would have done in half of the time.)

Why Crunchbang?  Well, here was my progression.  Linux Mint - Linux Mint Debian Edition - Linux Mint XFCE - Debian XFCE - #! XFCE - #! XFCE with added Fluxbox WM - #! OB.  With #! OB I have found my preferred balance between usability and lightweight.

People always say stuff like "The games I like are in Windows".

When I was a kid we had different 8-bit computers and we took it for granted that not all games were available for all platforms.

That is still true with platforms today. However if (the hardcore/non-casual) gamers had to choose either Linux games or Windows games, you know which they would likely want? Windows games. Also how many Linux-exlusive games are there really? With open-source, people can choose to port it to Windows anyways!
