CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

Want to know how CrunchBang Linux all started?  Want to hear me and Philip talk about how awesome the CrunchBang community is?  Then you must check out Hacker Public Radio, episode 0873

We recorded this with Ken Fallon of HPR at OggCamp 11, in August. Can you spot the glaring error? lol

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

wow, revealing! philip said he was going to upset some people because he was planning to do the point release Xfce only... then he released the point release Openbox only! what? i can see now why Statler is both Openbox and Xfce. he's clearly having trouble making up his mind smile

nice interview, interesting.

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

^ Is that the error bobobex is referring to?  Flip flop of Xfce and OB?

Have not listened yet...

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

Were they outdoors when they were having the interview? I can hear lots of wind noises to the mircophone.

Yes, we were recorded outside whilst having our lunch on the cafe terrace at The Farham Maltings.

Correct - on the podcast he talked about dropping OB for the not so popular Xfce version. He soon saw the light! lol

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

^^ It would be interesting to know what happened between the August interview and the Point Release..

My guess is that it is much easier to reinstall Xfce and less of a PR nightmare than OB

I am an Xfce user/pacifist... big_smile

and had 0 issues getting it loaded on the new point release..

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

Interesting. I prefer Xfce to OpenBox, myself, but I find that I lean more when placed in an environment not altogether comfortable, thus, Openbox it is.

All hats off to the moderators! Keeping things civil and way smarter than the average bear (the average bear having never learned to command line, or even taking that extra step to evolve thumbs or real fingers - no commitment to the advancement of the species).

Granted, I'm biased, but I do think we have the best forums out there. Where else can you hear about Linux, Turkish coffee, and which wine to drink while listening to Pink Floyd?

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

Nice interview smile Openbox was definitely the way to go. Xfce is a great environment but for sheer fun and tinkerability, it's hard to go past Openbox big_smile

Re: CrunchBang are on Hacker Public Radio

Very interesting. Very much appreciated @Corenominal with all your hard work and dedication put into this distro. I've been using it for about a solid year now and absolutely love everything all around. I listened to this at work and then it somehow led me into listening to some Linux Outlaw episodes.
