^ Wow, that's a rather poetic review. One thing though...
I'm sure the developers are aware that Vim is the perfect editor for Crunchbang.
Pfffffffft. I agree, pvsage. Different strokes for different folks, though I have to say that I've really warmed up to geany since using CrunchBang.
Jim Lynch mentions the Ostatic review of #! in his IT World post today:
Here's some Crunchbang history, Phillip Newbourough commenting on a very early version of Crunchbang Linux:
So, when I released the initial CrunchBang Linux I really didn’t think that anyone would actually download it.
His comments remind me a bit of Linus Torvald when he announced he was working on a new hobby OS:
I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu)
EeePc 1000HA with the 1000HE keyboard mod, running #!Wheezy
Thinkpad T61, running #!Testing (Jessie) 64-bit
Hi guys! Long time without posting here... I was very very busy in the last year, but I have kept reading the forum almost daily!!!
Some fellow paisanos and I have started a new blog about the whole FLOSS world and we have had the pleasure to interview the one and only Larry Cafiero!!!
Larry was so kind and amazing and I just wanted to say thanks to him again.
Here you can find the first part of the interview, were we interviewed " The Crunchbang Guy": http://magliettabianca.blogspot.it/2013 … uy-12.html
The blog is Italian, but you can find the original plain text English interview here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/apx73u8lf3r39 … intext.txt
In the next few days the interview to "The Free Software Guy" will follow!

^ @2:07 "I'm not sure what that one is", as he clicks the omnipresence box. Isn't that the traditional location for omnipresence/pin? I figured that one out after less than a month on Ubuntu.
I love to see amateurs attempt to review grown-up distros like CrunchBang - it's so obvious he's in it for the monetization.
My favorite sentence in the article about #!:
It works well on older machines, and can be easily fleshed out for relatively newer ones.
First I read the expression "fleshed out"
Take your time & do one thing at the time

This review of Ubuntu 14.04 mentions #! Waldorf briefly towards the end of the first page...
