Crunchbang 11 Waldorf review

Linux

Time for my annual abuse. As you all know, the Crunchbang community loves me, and they dedicated five pages of their forum space for my Statler review, which they loved so. Now, it's time for another test, the 64-bit version of their latest release, known as Waldorf, still officially labeled beta.

While there's a very high likelihood of the community giving me a proverbial goatse, I am undaunted in my mission. So it's time to see how the second Debian-based version of Crunchbang, a fairly non-newbie distro, behaved on my SSD-powered test box, alongside three other operating systems. Do follow me.
