Re: What is BunsenLabs?

I use Bunsenlabs because It just looks cool.... ops
I use older computers. I use lubuntu on "work" computers that I don't want to mess with, but use bunsenlabs on my "fun" pc.

Re: What is BunsenLabs?

BunsenLabs will be "cooler", than Crunchbang.
LXDE will be  more "lightweight", than Bunsen.

And I would like "Bork" (openbox minimal spin) based on Debian stable.  tongue
This would be priceless.

Bunsen Labs is a place. Bunsen Labs is a state of mind.

Re: What is BunsenLabs?

BunsenLabs is a lot like Crunchbang on the surface but it is also extending some functionality in areas that we all thought needed improvment. For instance, @cpoakes did an excellent job scripting up an expanded update-alternatives script that allows BunsenLabs users to specify more defaults than the current Debian update-alternatives system.

The eye candy is not the only thing that has received a good polishing. A lot of under the hood stuff had to go on to make a #! like alternative that uses current Debian Jessie functionality. If you look at the way things are accomplished in #!, you will see stuff that is considered outmoded in current Debian stable. For instance, the logout script used to use dbus calls for all the different logout options. It has been updated to use current systemd calls. I don't remember specifically but I think it also can fall back to the old dbus calls if you are using the sysvinit shim.

The point is, there are numerous small tweaks and fixes going on that may not be immediately apparent but had to be done in order to bring a #!-like system current. I understand that it may be difficult to go through all the development threads and see all the small tweaks and changes, so I have to ask you to trust that both developers and forum members giving feedback have put a lot of thought and effort into making BunsenLabs a great Linux experience.

See, we could have just made a #! clone such as so many are doing and been done with it. However, the majority of us felt like we needed to push the envelope some and see what ways we could improve on the #! experience.

64-bit Waldorf

that only took me 20 minutes to configure my hard drive partitions than install it
just installing  < > Debian takes longer to do just the same  ~
I don't know about most people but I really don't like having to relive that Windows experience when installing an OS. taking way too long to get it up and running.
personally  don't mind installing other programs afterwords.
it needs to be stripped down and just the bare mim along with the BL flare added.
FATDOG Linux I know it is a usb live Linux ~ but run it. that thing has everything needed to run a linuxbox.  root apps as well as user apps it needs to have a good over all OS.

just saying smile
