Crunchbang Linux review

Filed under
Linux

In my continued look at out of the ordinary Linux distributions, I installed Crunchbang Linux. Crunchbang’s main version is a distribution based on Debian’s stable branch (known as “squeeze”). This review is based on the 32-bit version of Crunchbang Linux. At this time, Crunchbang offers a regular version and one with backports installed (for the new kernel, among other things). I chose to use the regular version, R20120207 “Statler”.

Crunchbang is definitely not for casual users, nor does it claim to be. It’s a low-resource-using system for more advanced Linux users who won’t be frightened by the minimalist but very functional Openbox window manager.
