No, I haven't actually tried CrunchBang, although I am running the Kazam
screencaster from CrunchBang repos on Debian.

CrunchBang looks interesting, I have liked using some of the lighter
desktop set ups in the past. Currently I have been playing with KDE4. I
wonder how much CrunchBang has that is really unique from just
installing Openbox on Debian?  I have a fairly underpowered netbook,
perhaps I should consider trying it on that.
