After quite a while, there’s finally a new release over at Crunchbang. The alpha of the latest version, Crunchbang 10 “Statler”, is available for download, with ~1500 ISOs being downloaded on it’s first day of release.
This latest version deviates from the last in that it’s based on Debian, as opposed to Ubuntu. That said, Ubuntu is Debian based, and Ubuntu users (such as myself) will feel equally at home in a Debian environment.
#! 10 is quick too, as fast as the previous release, which was based on Ubuntu 9.04. RAM usage is good, with an idle boot clocking ~60Mb on my particular machine. As always, there’s a great selection of applications, and the Openbox desktop is as slick as ever. #! 10 continues the dark looks of it’s predecessors, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it ;)
I liked the header of the download’s page so much, that I decided to create a wallpaper from it. It’s in 1024×768, but if you want it a different size, leave a comment.
Credit goes to whoever over at Crunchbang designed the page :)
