What was CrunchBang?
CrunchBang was a Debian GNU/Linux based distribution offering a great blend of speed, style and substance. Using the nimble Openbox window manager, it was highly customisable and provided a modern, full-featured GNU/Linux system without sacrificing performance.
Development of CrunchBang has ended, but it inspired the creation of some excellent spin-off projects by community members.
A special note about the #! community
The CrunchBang community and its members were truly epic. During the lifetime of the project, many friendships were formed and much knowledge was shared. Arguably, CrunchBang wasn't a Linux distro, it was a community. Out of respect for the community the project's forums continue to be hosted on this site. Visit the forums.
