A quick Intro...

When I decided to wean myself from Windows, I too tried more distros than I care to count; some with plenty of eyecandy, some very minimalistic. When I got to CrunchBang, I stopped. It is, for me, pretty close to the perfect balance between too much and too little. Even the grey theming suggested a blank slate from which I could make it my own.
 
I have been using Waldorf now for about three months. I have it loaded on my Toshiba laptop in pretty much its basic form, and on my Dell desktop where I needed to make it more "windows-like" since my wife, children and grandchildren use it. It works beautifully on both.

I want to thank Corenominal for a great distro and to this community for being so open with their knowledge and expertise without being judgmental. I don't yet have the experience to contribute much... yet.

Welcome, jwz.

Yes. If baby bear had a Linux distribution it would be CrunchBang. It's "just right".
