#!, we just met, but I think I’m in love with you

Hi there,

I’ve been a long time Ubuntu and Debian user, but recently I was getting bored of having zero issue on my debian install, so I went adventuring on unknown seas, namely Fedora 15 with GNOME 3.
I really tried to like it, but the numerous regressions in functionality and looks on the GNOME side and the brokenness of Fedora made me cry at night.
So I was about to reinstall good old Debian, but decided to give #! a try while I was at it.

I absolutely love it! It’s snappy, software choices make a lot of sense, and the attention that was paid to customizing openbox and its menus really makes the whole thing shine.

The only thing I missed was some more choices of keyboard layouts during install. I use a Dvorak-ish French layout called "fr bepo" and it’s not available during the install process, while Ubuntu offers it.

Anyway, no big deal, and long life to #!

Well the keyboard issue is solved by a simple "setxkbmap fr bepo" added to ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh so that my layout is loaded when my session is started. As I said, really no big deal, it took me 30s to figure this out thanks to these forums.
