"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."
