I'm not sure diverging too much from the debain default base is a good idea. I always imagined #! as the debian base with some changes to the desktop side of things. A really nice default openbox, tint2, compton, and conky setup going and some fresh versions of a few packages (iceweasel for instance) but to leave the core untouched.

I couldn't agree more! Keeping the core Debian base, removing and replacing the bloated packages with lighter alternatives and adding some fresh versions of packages is what I think #! is all about.

The core philosophies of Debian is why I love it, I just want a lighter, more customisable system.

Then again, I am not corenominal and he can do what he wants

I also agree with this too  tongue

And for some of my own ideas:
Although I do love the simplicity of gFTP, it's just not active anymore. So I think Filezilla may be the way to go.

I also think GIMP is unnecessary and should be the user's choice. Maybe add it to the cb-welcome script?

Greetings Crunchbang users!

I've been using Gnu/Linux for about 2 years now and have moved from Ubuntu, to Debian and now I've landed on #!

As a lot of users who get more experienced and comfortable in a Linux environment often do, I always seeked a little bit more from my distros. In the search for a lighter, more customisable and cooler distro I left the bloaty and commercialised Ubuntu to find a light system. This was Debian Squeeze. I was happy with Squeeze until I realised I wanted more up-to-date software. Thankfully Wheezy arrived not long after and I finally got that wish. But, with the heavy and ugly Gnome 3 coming with it, I looked for an even lighter system. So I installed the XFCE DE. This was great but I realised even this was deadweight for me. I like things to be simple and uniform. I tried to customise Debian XFCE to make it look nicer and run lighter and I stumbled across this forum and the Crunchbang community. I started reading and instantly knew I had found what I was looking for! I quickly installed #! and haven't looked back since!

Anyway, I'd like to thank the developers for creating/maintaining this great distro and the community for making it alive!
