Are you dual-booting OS X and CrunchBang or are you running CrunchBang exclusively?  I'm curious because I'm toying with the idea of getting Mac hardware.  I did a little bit of searching on the Net today and one recommendation was to dual-boot with OS X so that you could install any firmware updates.

Why?  If it's because of systemd I read a post on the Salix forums that Slackware may not have a choice but to eventually use systemd.

...Sorry Corenominal, I know systemd is not your favorite topic.

Re: After Janice

^Overall, I've had good luck dual-booting OS X and Linux. If you wipe OS X from the HDD, iSight (camera), for example, and other hardware might not work, which I discovered after I wiped OS X from an old MacBook. Currently, I'm dual-booting OS X and #! on an iMac. The OS X partition has a total of 200 GB (my wife still prefers OS X) and the rest of the HDD is for #!. I run updates and backups on both partitions weekly.  smile

Re: After Janice

@KrunchTime - Hardware compatibility with #!/Wheezy might depend on the age of your Mac. I was running Ubuntu with OS X and then I messed up and had to reinstall OS X from scratch (and hadn't made a backup). Ubuntu 14.04 is mostly very nice but the touchpad is a little trigger-happy. The good thing about Ubuntu (and Mint) is that you don't need to use Refind. Now I'm just running OS X and have put Jessie with Gnome on another laptop. I don't really like OS X but there is some great software for it.

Re: After Janice

I guess Mac hardware is a no go for me, then.  I'm not interested in dual-booting anymore; been there done that.  I'm thinking of purchasing from ZaReason based on recommendations by lcafiero.  I like their 13/13.3-inch laptop, but after I select the options I want, it comes out to almost $2,000, which includes a 3-year warranty.  The price is comparable to the top end MacBook Pro 13.3-inch, but I don't know if the ZaReason laptop is as nice.

I really like how you can customize a purchase at both System76 and ZaReason.  Too bad Dell no longer offers this.

I hope you're wrong.  I love this distro and the community.

^True.

I've been waiting by the window for Janice, hanky in hand, like a sap. But if she never arrives, there are plenty more distros on Distrowatch. Life will go on.

Haha, that reminded me of something years ago on FedoraForum.org. After having a fantastically tumultuous and entertaining time with the great(no sarcasm) mods over there, I moved on to other distros and quit visiting.  I kept getting messages from the members and mods because someone had registered on the forums as "Steve Ballmer" to troll the off-topic chat and everyone was convinced that it was me.  I couldn't convince them otherwise.

I would have thought that someone would have banned that user as well if true.  Don't get me wrong, I like ew, but I can understand how some of his posts can be irritating.

...and that was quite a smack down by bobobex.

Re: After Janice

ew unzipped his fly in a post in a recent screenshots thread (don't have a link to the exact post, but he was logged in as "ew" in the screenshot), and he pulled his pants down when he posted - as common-sense - that we had banned him (I believe he was posting as hubbabubba at the time of that ban).  No matter how we ban him, he finds a way of coming back.  Also, he claims that he burned his bridges to his original account, but I think it's a testament to the CrunchBang community that he keeps rebuilding those bridges.

Re: After Janice

I like @common-sense, he has started helping out in threads again which I  think is fantastic.

I must admit I wasn't paying much attention to the off-topic stuff when he was banned so I am unsure about the nature of his transgression but @common-sense has stated that it was a personal split between himself & @corenomial and has also stated that @corenomial sent him abusive PMs after the event.

Obviously there is a lot of "he sed, she sed" bs going on here, but it's not as simple as @ew==bad

Re: After Janice

@HoaS:  I've read some of his previous posts.  It's okay to complain, but there's a limit.

I saw that tweet.  Debian Jessie comes with Gnome by default.  I think, and hope, that Corenominal isn't interested in using Gnome for the desktop for the Janice release.

Yes, I also read a recent glowing review about Gnome 3.x and how it's come along nicely from the initial release.  I still don't care for it.  It's not the way I like to operate.  To each his/her own, though; if you like Gnome, use it.  I much prefer openbox and the tint2 panel.

Re: After Janice

^ maybe GNOME has come a long way and maybe it is light / fast and much better than I remember it.  For me, and this is just a personal opinion, it reminded me too much of Windows.  Bottom left corner to get the menu ... blah blah ... and I had tweaked mine to death too.

First thing I ditched were desktop icons - second thing nautilus - I hated that file manager, I installed thunar  big_smile

Ditching GNOME would be harder than installing it if someone wanted it, but it is doable.  I have come to really love OpenBox and for the foreseeable future will use it along with my super cut down tint2 (systray only).

Also, one can run OB in GNOME.
