"Ubuntu's elegant little brother, a spin-off of the Crunchbang
distro, does away with GNOME. There is only a window manager,
namely Openbox and a sleek black background with a neat Conky
setup. A lot of fat has also been trimmed in the application
department, if you want Openoffice you will have to download it
yourself. By default you get Firefox, VLC, Skype, Flash and a lot
of other useful programs for your everyday computing needs. I
understand the decision of not including Openoffice, it is a big
app and I myself use only the most basic functions of a word
processor, the only problem are compatibility issues with documents
you get from other people. Always a big pain. Give Cruncheee a try.
It is much lighter than UNR."
