Not sure if what I've just installed is CrunchBang anymore.

Well, I'm busted. I got into a modification mood last night.

From the stock Waldorf install, I enabled backports (albeit only on request). I installed the 3.9.0 kernel from there, as well as a newer 4.x version of LibreOffice. I installed XFCE 4.8 from the repositories, and decked it out with the CrunchBang theme objects. I swapped a couple of programs (Ristretto for Viewnior, etc). Installed MDM login manager from LMDE's repositories. Installed WhiskerMenu from a downloaded package. Installed Plymouth, stole the pulsing CrunchBang logo theme ("Script") from the Statler repositories. I removed Openbox, Tint2, etc.

Then I set about making sure XFCE runs as lean as possible. On a cold boot, I'm only using 105Mb, which is 10Mb more than a cold boot under OpenBox. I know CrunchBang used to ship with XFCE as an option, but Phillip opted to focus on Openbox instead. Which is great, because the latest version, Waldorf, is as good as I've ever seen it. Personally, however, I've finally found a sweet spot environment for me. I don't think building off Debian as a start would have yielded the same results, thanks to the firmware, codecs, and other goodies included by default in CrunchBang.

But should I still call it CrunchBang? Or heavily modified Debian?  neutral

EDIT: Originally, I'd claimed 130Mb on a cold boot. Not sure how I made that mistake, but Conky is reporting 105Mb, boot after boot, so better than I thought.

Call it whatever you'd like as long as you don't call it late for dinner.

Re: Not sure if what I've just installed is CrunchBang anymore.

Nope, that`s not Crunchbang any more. The kernel doesn`t mather, but  removing openbox and tint2 removes whatever could be considered as uniqe to Crunchbang. The main selling point is a well-configured openbox/tint2 - desktop, and the instant you stray away from that, then you are no longer using Crunchbang  devil
