I've installed CrunchBang this week after a friend and fellow Ubuntu deserter recommended it, and I have got to say, #! is awesome. The interface is so elegant with programs visually popping of the desktop so I can concentrate on work, and it is all so easy to use, even for a linux idiot like myself:-)
I mainly use Linux for programing Lego Mindstorms robots, although based on how awesome #! is I am considering ditching OS X altogether. I've installed the Java based leJOS this week. I wrote my slightly troubled install up at Installing CrunchBang and leJOS I'll post a separate question in the right forum.
Good to be here and thanks to Philip and everyone else for the awesome distro and forums.
i build robots!
