Slack user turned Crunchbang user.

I've been using Slackware for many years and have finally decided to install a completely different distro with my new desktop build.  So, this is a hello to everyone on here! 

I am loving the sleek feel by the way!

Welcome TheV, it's always nice to have more uber users around. You win a waffle.

Re: Slack user turned Crunchbang user.

Welcome from a fellow slacker! As you are used to editing text files for configuration, like a true *nix user, you'll do just fine.

Re: Slack user turned Crunchbang user.

Welcome, TheV.  Hmm...I'd be interested to hear what you think about CrunchBang/Debian versus Slackware.  Isn't Slackware more of a bleeding-edge distro?

07/04/2013-01 edit:  Never mind.  I just checked a review on www.distrowatch.com and Slackware is not bleeding-edge.

Running Slackware-current is pretty bleeding edge. Not Arch bleeding edge, but still fairly bloody.

Is Slackware-current kind of like Debian Testing/Unstable?  I see they're using a more current kernel than what Debian Unstable provides.

Slackware-current would be akin to running Sid, but the kernel and packages are more current than Sid, generally.

Re: Slack user turned Crunchbang user.

Hello TheV from another Slackware user and welcome to the forums. Re. the Current branch, I would second JWJones. It's really well up to date currently (oops), only a little behind Arch but very stable. A good option. Current has sometimes been more conservative in the past, around the 11-12.2 versions, but in the last few years it has been very cutting edge.
