    Dude....just go use PClinuxOS and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

    Meanwhile I'll be happy with my Opensuse XFCE, Gnome 3 Arch Linux, and working on getting Ubuntu 15.04 Enlightenment 19 up and running. The rest of the world has decided that fragmented crap and fuc*ed up init scripts are terrible. Live with it or go make your own alternatives and be praised by the 20 other people that share your irrational hatred of Systemd.

    Times are changing. I feel nostalgic. CrunchBang#! was a really cool distro.

    Crunchbang will always be in my top 10 favourite Linux distros.
    He'll always be in my heart/HDD.

    I am quite sad, it was the ideal distro for my netbook. I used it a lot. Rock stable unlike lubuntu and preconfigured.

    I'm going to put this here in case anyone wants to help make it less deader:

    Too bad. I love OpenBox + tint2 for the simplicity and light weight, they've been the desktop on three of my machines for +6 years (just switched my main workhorse to i3wm), so I had a lot of sympathy for CrunchBang and kind of hoped it'd eventually help move OpenBox forward.

    I installed CrunshBang on some Atom-based-GMA-graphics-netbook from 2010(?) a couple of weeks ago. Working perfectly and fast. Battery life up to 8hours using TLP.
    Tried Xubuntu 12.04 on the same device before and it was extremely slow, almost unusable. Drained battery in ~1hour. Way too much disc-access (swapping?).

    CrunshBang is/was great.

    It is not easy. New distributions come when someone can't find "the best distro" and when (s)he wants to build his/her own distro.

    In fact, there is a lot of distro forks. I think if we stop to fork distros, we can stop spreading new distributions every day.

    It has its place still. It was lighter weight than lubuntu with codecs included. It was handy for installing on old hardware kind of like what puppy is. Although in the last 4 years things have gotten drastically heavier. Can't web brows on a PII anymore.
    I liked desktop text config, very light weight. I will keep this in mind for when I want something lightweight installed.
