For a long time, I always tried to use something that somebody told me that is fun, nice, it is what I was looking for.
But now, looking for what I would like to run in my computer, what I would like to customize and understand, I found the CrunchBang.
CrunchBang is a lightweight Linux distribution, with OpenBox and some customization to help the usability.
To me it is perfect, with a clean desktop, some shortcuts to access the most common used application and run what I need to run.
Now, I’m running it at home and at work, with a customized conkyrc and tint2rc, like you can see below:
Some characteristics that I liked:
- Very simple install process
- Clean installation
- cb-welcome.sh : a script that runs in the first login and help new users to update the system an install packages normally used, like:
- Development packages
- SSH server
- Debian packaging tools
After install, I upgraded the packages to use versions available in SID, because the last release of #! is the Waldorf, based on Debian Wheezy. But I didn’t like to keep using a 3.2 Kernel Linux.
To proceed with the dist-upgrade, the #! community have a very nice post.
This is my suggestion of Linux Distribution to use at this moment.
