I agree that the search facility should be easier to access, but even then people need to realise that everyones skill level at using search tools is different. Some people find it more difficult to use search tools to find what they are looking for than others. Some of this, like with most things, comes down to experience.

The other week at work I told my colleauge how I had found a good mnemonic to remember the namesd of the valves in the human heart. She told me I was a genius, I said "no. I just know how to use Google".

Even if the search function is easy to find and use there will always be people asking questions that have been answerd many times before.

I find Geany great for LaTeX editing for my MSc. Lightweight, quick, easy to use, useful autocompletion. I used Emacs last time I did any studying, about 8 years ago, but haven't got the time to learn all the commands again now.

I've used Crunchbang for a couple of years now on an old desktop and for the past year or so on an equally old Dell laptop that was really struggling with windows XP. It's super quick; the laptop leaves my wife's one year old lenovo laptop with windows 7 standing. Unfortunately I daren't put Crunchbang on her laptop because she lacks patience with windows and I think she'd lose it if she had to learn the idiosyncrasies of linux. Having said that I find Crunchbang perfect for my needs and my children who are 5 and 8 seem to have no problems using it for web-browsing, iplayer, web games etc.

Hmmm, maybe I'll dual boot her machine for her while she's out one day...

I think that the menu is really easy to edit. Having two options from the menu to edit it's config has allowed me to produce custom menus for my kids with their games etc at the top and has helped me learn a little about XML too, which, I'm ashamed to say, had always been a mystery to me.

Currently loving crunchbang and wishing I had more time to spend using it and tinkering.

Thanks for the warm welcome! Will check out those tools for use with the iPhone.

Hello all. I've eventually come back to Linux after a break of about 5 years and Crunchbang works great on the old Athlon XP desktop I've resurected out of my loft. Can't believe I put up with Windows XP on my wife's laptop for all that time!

Anyway, I'm really enjoying being part of the Linux community again and looking forward to more adventures with crunchbang. Currently trying to get it doing some useful stuff with my iPhone!
