Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

This is a fantastic disclaimer. Though I must admit, when I first started to dable with Linux, I was attracted to crunchbang but at the time I needed a stable machine (I was living in Africa with limited internet access). After moving back to the US and after becoming much more comfortable with Linux (that's all I use now) I finally did give #! a try and I love it.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

Well, it seems to make my machine go "Crunch, Bang!" a lot less than Mint 12 did, which is what I switched from.

lol

I admit, it probably isn't the distro for a n00b .... but, since I aint a n00b, then, I guess it will be fine.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

If the user leaves the defaults as they are, nothing will break. Of course until the 'shave off 12 Kilobyte RAM usage by removing tty's'  begins. cool

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

^ it is indeed quite difficult to really break the entire thing. however, on my first day of using #!, during the initiation rite of Total Customization, i suddenly found myself without my tint2 taskbar. seemed i messed something up with config-files. same thing happened multiple times with conky. however, instead of scared and angry, it got me laughing and excited. that was probably when i started falling in love with Linux, and #!

...which overwrites the existing users config files if not careful wink Everybody talks of backups, but most people don't do them.

Well, you did like Forrest Gump. wink  (Just ribbin' ya, Roald.)

CrunchBang was my second Linux distro after Ubuntu (OK, third if you count the Dellbuntu that came on my netbook), but since I learned practically nothing about Linux using those other than the fact that the early versions of UNR run like molasses, I suppose you could say CrunchBang was my n00b distro as well.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

CrunchBang has been my first Linux distro. Including all the trouble switching from Windows to Linux, I cant say it was much harder than switching from XP to Vista; More rewording though:)

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

The disclaimer is fine - and it reminds us, that we have a great part in computer's security and stability.

The machine can only be as perfect as the man / woman sitting in front of the display.  wink

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

I researched Linux for a couple of months before settling on CrunchBang #!. WHY? Since my head injury I lost years of memory, and have been spending time re-learning LOTS OF THINGS.  Just about everything I knew from Assembly to DOS, C to Java was lost. So to learn Linux AGAIN, I use Crunchbang.

I kinda reminds me of Windows XP. It is stable, but you get to modify it to work for you. (Windows XP was released as a Beta to the public, and when it got to working good, Microsoft made Windows 7. :8 )

OR DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE STABLE TO USE CRUNCHBANG #! ?  tongue


Phear the Penguin.

tongue I am not CrAzY.  And I have a paper from the doctors to prove it!  tongue
