"Hey, just the cool name alone warrants a look at this
distribution. Good idea, Brian!
"CrunchBang Linux is based on Ubuntu but it doesn't use Gnome or
KDE for its desktop environment. Instead it used a lightweight
window manager called Openbox. Openbox doesn't have the eye-candy
of Gnome or Ubuntu but it's faster and much better suited to older
computers and for those who prefer functionality over looks. It's a
minimalistic desktop environment that doesn't seek to overwhelm you
with feature-itis or the latest 3D special effects. It's rooted in
simplicity but is also quite customizable if you wish to change it
to suit your own preferences."
