CrunchBang Linux is a lightweight Debian based Linux distribution. It uses the Openbox window manager and is especially suitable for low-end hardware with limited resources such as the ASUS Eee PC. CrunchBang can be run as a Live CD and fully installed from the same CD.
CrunchBang Linux is designed to offer a good balance of speed and functionality. It has a fast boot up, includes a large number of applications by default whilst remaining lightweight and secure. It operates well under low resources so can work well for some older PC's.
