Re: The end.

Thanks for your brillant work in setting up a lightweight Debian/OpenBox distro, and for your generosity in helping users with technical issues in this Forum.  You've shown us how it's done.

It's been a good run.  All the best in your new endeavours.

Thanks again for all you've done for the people who use Linux.  We have to take up the mantle to show newcomers how to set up their computers with Linux distributions that will meet their needs -- whatever those needs may be.  :-)

Cheers, Mate!

PS -- That recent donation is still good. You'll need a few quid to defray your expenses as you are winding things down.

Re: The end.

Back when I was still a Linux user, I liked #! for its quite unique OOTB experience. Something Debian won't ever have, I guess.
There's still a niche where #! fits in quite perfectly. I find it sad to see you go.

Re: The end.

Thanks Corenominal for all your work through the years. I began using CrunchBang around 8.04 and I really liked it's simplistic approach but also very powerful and flexibel at the same time. I'm using Debian Jessie with a minimal Gnome 3 setup right now and was looking forward to switch to Janice when it come out, but I guess that won't happen.  sad

Could anyone suggest any Debian+Openbox alternative if there exists such a ting.

Re: The end.

Big thanks to @Corenominal for the work he's done!

(I created an account so I could say that...)

I'd always thought that the decision to create a distinct distro a fairly insane amount of work for this.  I would love to see the project live on as a package made available to use on vanilla Debian and Ubuntu (even if only as a PPA), rather than a distinct distro.

Re: The end.

Sad news as well , just had my 2 lappies on # ! lol

I understand your motives corenominal but it has value on my end . I have Jessie repo on one of my install so I ll go with this for a while .

I can understand also the need to move to something else .  Good luck with your future project(s) .

Like other members here , I would like you to reconsider also .

Hope someone would step up & continue # , or fork it out as some other sid distros , I m not good enough for that .

One was looking interested , you can pm me . I can try to test it on one of my lappies .

Good luck Ceremonial .

& lets not forget the team & the forum , great bunch .

Re: The end.

what a blow.

shocker.

takes a moment to adjust after news like that.

end of an era.

ok...  no time to mourn, on with the next...

time for a devuan-based community-made crunchbang perhaps?


ps.  many many many many thanks for your years of meticulous pre-configuration and good taste, corenommynoms.  this era shall be missed.

pps.  you changed my life.  you changed linux distros.  you changed the world.

I have had to remove a post from this thread regarding incentive funding. Please do not start third-party funding campaigns. Anything like that should be cleared with corenominal. Thank you.

Re: The end.

Many thanks for the great ride with a great distro and a great community, Corenominal/Philip! As a retired person with a couple of careers behind me, I understand and respect your decision. You've contributed mightily to Linux and you can look back and be proud of what you accomplished with CrunchBang.

When I was still experimenting with dual-booting Linux (Ubuntu and Mint) on my Macs more than 5 years ago, I couldn't figure out how to get Debian and Debian-based distros to run on my hardware, but I was so intrigued by the name CrunchBang that it was the first distro I ran in VB. When the old MacBook died and I replaced it with a System76 laptop, CrunchBang was the first distro I ran after removing Ubuntu. It was a big step for me, but thanks to the forums and the great folks who participate, I discovered that I rarely had to ask for help in trying to figure things out. A quick search almost always answered any question I had--and still does. During that time, I learned enough from other CrunchBangers to run #! on my now old iMac and more recently succeeded in running #! Sid on it for several months with no crashes or problems.

Again many thanks and all the best in your future endeavors and Godspeed.

Re: The end.

@corenominal & @bobobex,

Thanks for the time, money and love you shared with all who benefited from your work.
I learned from #! and moved on; still occasionally checking in, keeping a copy
of the current Crunchbang on an Easy2Boot USB, just in case.
All the best in your future endeavors.

saludos,
Richard.

Re: The end.

A black day in Linux history. I really am kinda shocked. But I think everything has been thought over and the right decisions have been made. Crunchbang wasn't just a distro, it was a way of life.
Thanks for allowing me those years joining the "dark side".

Re: The end.

Since my adoption of crunchbang I have learned enough about linux to know that I can be just as happy without crunchbang. This is so much more important to me than the distribution itself. I am very thankful for everyone's hard work on this project and wish the best of luck on all of your future endeavors.
