O' course you can, pedenski. You might want to head over to introductions as well. I'm running XBMC on it and it makes for a great media centre.

Welcome sir! You can do most things within linux, no matter which distro...it's just the level of tinkering varies.

Crunchbang Waldorf based on Debian Wheezy. #! is a distribution with very a easy configuration. The reason is the standard activation of non-free software/firmware and some other optimizations.
To install a media server so you can use a normal Debian Wheezy and configure and install everything on your own or use Crunchbang. For problems see the Crunchbang or Debian community.

The docs for Debian aren't bad, if a little overextending, but beware the forums. The user base can be a little rough with what they consider "noob" questions. That turned me off from using that branch for years  neutral

I'm still learning how to use and configure Debian, but practically all the questions/answers I've come across in their forums can be applied to #!.

Wouldn't it be better to just run headless Debian? #! does pack a little desktop bloat. It all depends on how it will be used as a server.


Who am I? Who I am doesn't matter. All you need to know is that I run GNU+Linux.
