Something went crunch, then bang, and boom I was here :D

Greetings and Salutations To ALL !!  I got rid of Windows 7  (are we allowed to say that?)  about 6 months ago.  I am  a little past a total noob, but I am truly an eternal noob since I am always learning.  I AM using CrunchBang as my sole operating system,  and think I will be hard pressed to ever change again.  I was looking at Manjaro Openbox, and fell in love with Openbox, and very curious to experience Arch, and even though I got to experience it off my live dvd, alas the installer did not work well on my computer.  I guess that its planned to be a better installer come early Fall............dunno, and now I dont care lol's.  I DID like the pacman, but I am totally familiar with Debian, and Synaptic Package Manager,  and getting better with running scripts in the terminal. I have used various versions of Mint,  I have used Bodhi *its real nice, but I like Openbox over Enlightment, sad to say.  I thought I had found the end of the rainbow when I tried Bodhi, but alas, the need to learn and experiment brings us to new things we never thought possible, and without ever having even thought about it, we have moved forward. When I came across CrunchBang, and watched some videos, and discovered I could have the peace of mind of Debian, the beauty and efficiency of Openbox WITHOUT the fear of Arch crashing,  well, I lost all need to wait for Manjaro to work on its installer a bit more,  and THAT, as they say, is the story of how I got here.

Love,
Brig

Wow, you've had quite a trip around the Linux block!  By the way, it's fine to say "Windows 7" here; we have several forum members who are still tied to that due to video games, business software, what-have-you.

Welcome to the Friendliest Corner of the Internets.

Re: Something went crunch, then bang, and boom I was here :D

Hey Brig,

..and a big welcome to CrunchBang. Well, my own story mirrors yours almost exactly  big_smile ..I discovered Linux through Mint14 at the end of last year. Through YouTube I found Openbox and recently tried Manjaro. While I was struggling with errors in Manjaro and getting down about it, I came across CrunchBang and took the leap across and boy am I happy i did. I have never been so excited by an OS. With CrunchBang your only limitation is the limits of your imagination. Welcome aboard Brig..

Re: Something went crunch, then bang, and boom I was here :D

Guiness it is then!  smile Had a quick look at the Saranac website and it's definitely worth trying, Big Moose Ale sounds good. Will have to see if I can find that anywhere on my travels.
We have the Weatherspoon's pubs beer festivals in October here every year, with plenty guest beers, one barrel each so there's another beer on almost every day. Pale Ale and Bitters if you fancy wink . Maybe they'll have yours one day.

^Oh yes, like Schwarzbier. But if you really want to get drunk try Guinness with a shot of Kirschlikör.  cool And have a few.

Re: Something went crunch, then bang, and boom I was here :D

I want a festival with barrels of beer! Pretty sure corenominal can set that up if we all ask nicely. Then we can discuss whether Guiness is beer.
