I have tested #! for a couple of weeks, and now I ready for a fully migration from xUbuntu. I'm really glad with #!
I'm a software developer (Java, Ruby, Clojure), I use the pc deeply and crunchbang works really great for my uses. I think that #! is in the sweet spot between a fulled featured distro with a lot of apps preinstaled and the very very small, light weight distros.
The selection of defaults apps and shortcuts is really great, you did a great job in this aspects. The resource consumption is really good, work with #! is smooth and fast.
The doubts that I have had I have been able to resolve in the forums for the moment, so its other good point too. I saw that the community is friendly, this is really good because the GNU/Linux community is sometimes hard, specially with the newcomers.
So, thanks for delivering this great distro.
welcome to #!
