Jon Buys at Ostatic wrote a nice blog item about CrunchBang yesterday that’s definitely worth a read.
If you have a chance, you might want to thank Jon for his blog post, and make a positive comment — even if you’re not a Vim user (as he finds that it would be the perfect editor for CrunchBang).
One of the things I think is lacking in the review — though certainly not a knock against the blogger — is that while CrunchBang comes in basic black, what is often overlooked is that it is really a “blank canvas,” so to speak, where you can make it as colorful as you want. Take a look at the screenshots in the monthly screenshot thread (the link is for August’s, but you can find each month’s in Artwork and Screenshots) to see what others have done.
That was my only relevant observation. And I took the time to thank Jon for his blog, and I hope you will too.
Incidentally, just perusing Distro Watch this morning while looking for something else, we’re still hanging in there in the top 20, ranging from 14 to 17.
A blessing and a curse: Yes, I’m on the FOSS Force Best Personal Linux and FOSS Blog poll twice — once as me, and another time as Larry the Free Software Guy — and I’m asking that you take a look and vote for what you think is the best blog. Truthfully, I’ve already won by making it this far, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to win. So don’t forget to vote — deadline is Monday.
