[News] Ubuntu Derivative CrunchBang Linux 9.04 Gets Another Great Review

Hash: SHA1

CrunchBang Linux 9.04 (OpenBox with Ubuntu) Review and Screenshots 

,----[ Quote ]
| CrunchBang is a fine distro.  It is very fast, and thanks to OpenBox, full of 
| configuration options for the power user. The initial drab desktop can be 
| configured to a very graphical environment, or left as-is.  
| A casual Linux user might be better served to start with a more standard 
| distro like Ubuntu or OpenSuse, with all the graphical eye-candy.  CrunchBang 
| ain’t pretty out of the box, but it surely gets the job done quickly!  
| If you have an older machine, or are looking for a fast distro with many 
| customization options for you to design the desktop of your dreams, then you 
| will definitely want to try CrunchBang Linux.  


And it's truly selling...

Ubuntu Netbooks: Strong Demand at System76

| As I scour the market for a potential Ubuntu netbook purchase, I’ve stumbled 
| onto two interesting tidbits of info: First, Ubuntu netbook demand recently 
| exceeded supply at System76. Second, another niche Ubuntu PC maker will 
| introduce a netbook this August.   
| Sorry I don’t have specific “sales figures” for you. But I do have anecdotal 
| pieces of info… 



Back with a CrunchBang #!

| WHAT happened to the "p-y-e-o-w-w-w"?
| I've lost count of the number of times the sci-fi blaster sound that
| CrunchBang Linux makes when it starts up has made me - or someone in the room
| with me - jump.
| Now, it makes an equally sci-fi "boop-bleep-bup" sound which is nice, but
| doesn't have the same dramatic effect of making people duck if your speaker
| volume is maxed-out.


CrunchBang Linux 9.04.01 Review and Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, I admit I had a lot of fun testing Crunchbang. Although some
| people can find the Openbox Desktop and the grey-black color scheme (the
| window borders are a bit too dark, people may have problems seeing the
| buttons) a bit intimidating, Crunchbang’s main strength is that it does not
| make you watch, but explore.


CrunchBang Linux 8.10.02: A review

,----[ Quote ]
| As I become more knowledgable about Linux, the thought has crossed my mind to
| create my own distribution. However, I’ll readily admit I’m not the most
| technical user, but at least I’m getting to a point where I could give it a
| try. Using Ubuntu as the base would probably be easiest, starting from a
| minimal install, and using my favoruite window manager: Openbox. It wouldn’t
| be a minimalist or leightweight distribution, just one that provided almost
| all of the functionality and none of the bloat.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
