Don't know what took me so long

I have been useing various small distros like puppy. slitaz. vector lite ... on old compters either picked up in the trash or the dump
Actually have a few semi decent computers I can't give give away cause noone will try linux. Even android users -go figure?
Love openbox and kept coming to crunchbang forums for tips and configurations.
Wasn't a big ubuntu fan and so didn't get around to installing #! until recently.
Funny thing is on first boot up it runs with almost everything I was taking time setting up on other systems
Had a little trouble registering ,my email was being blocked.Didn't realise I was chatting with VastOne first time on irc who was trying to get me help (see avatar)
Great distro-gonna dip deeper and try to learn more
P.S.     ximru  = short for     X (linux)  I am are you?

Re: Don't know what took me so long

Welcome aboard ximru.

Unfortunately, to get other people to try Linux, it quite often has to have a resemblance to what they are used to, & that usually means a desktop environment rather than a more efficient window manager.
