Awesome!

Hi guys,

I'm very new to Linux. Had been trying a couple of distros e.g. Ubuntu, Mint, Arch, ArchBang, and finally coasting to crunchbang. Using it for a couple of weeks and I'm very happy with it  big_smile

The community is as awesome as the distro! I have been asking a silly questions in the IRC and receiving prompt answers smile Hoping to learn more from you guys.

Welcome to the distro and the community, ceilfors.  Wow, you're very new to Linux, but you tried out Arch?  How'd that go?

Re: Awesome!

Thanks guys!

@KrunchTime
Overall it was quite a good learning experience! The documentation on their wiki is one of the best documentation for Linux out there. I said so because I followed the whole guide and managed to get it up and running. And also, although I'm using Crunchbang now, occasionally I still read their wiki. I enjoyed my first time experience connecting to WiFi via command line big_smile I think Arch is good for learning Linux, but I'm afraid for a beginner like me it is very hard to get a real work done. I have to modify a couple  bash scripts to get things done. I think I survived for a few weeks because I'm a software engineer.

Welcome to the Crunchbang family ceilfors.  It's a pleasure to have you.

I agree with your views on the Arch wiki, and how reading and paying attention really pay off.
