Linux "A lot of modern Linux distributions created with desktop users in mind go out of their way to be user friendly. Ubuntu, Mint, openSUSE, Fedora - and many more. It is a sign of how desktop Linux has matured that even non-techy types can get a fully featured and easy-to-use open source operating system up and running in not much time at all. The creators of CrunchBang Linux, however, haven't quite gone in the same direction."

That's ArchBang you're thinking of...

Yes, "meta-distros" like Arch (or Gentoo, or Debian for that matter) tend to hold your hand a bit less and force you to do some reading if you want to get somewhere. At the same time, the desire to learn and understand more about the internals of the system is often what drives people (and by people I mean at least me, of course) to leave the comfort of Ubuntu and try something else.
