CrunchBang 10 Statler review - Crunch, bang

Filed under
Linux

CrunchBang Linux is a power-user oriented, minimalistic distribution focused on clear, simple elegance of the Openbox desktop, with a low memory footprint, a robust behavior, and a spartan set of programs. Not one to fawn over you, it's the other way around, although, based on the facts and figures, it should not be too difficult to setup.

The biggest change since the last time I tested the distro is the switch to the Debian base from the Ubuntu family, which also guarantees a rolling release schedule. In other words, install once and enjoy forever. But this also means introducing archaic elements of computing, the kind that Ubuntu was intended to solve. So there's the tricky teaser question for you, whether going Debian can make an operating system more effective, perhaps somewhat akin to Linux Mint Debian Edition?
