This morning Crunchbang developer Corenominal, announced his decision to stop developing CrunchBang.
I know a lot of people here used to have Crunchbang on their computers before jumping to Archbang and if I remember correct Archbang itself got a lot of help from the Crunchbang forum on its first steps, so I thought I should share the news here. It's a shame that this distro came to an end, it surely will be missed from a lot of people.

wow! thats a shame.
I have used Crunchbang in the past and loved it's clean and simple desktop.

I was about to post this also. I have used it in the past, but I really didn't like the Debian base. sad to see it go.
i didnt like the debian stable base either. ya you could switch the repos to unstable but what a pain and it always conflicted with the crunch setup.
the crunchbang setup was great though. i loved the theme and the options on it. its what made me a openbox fan.
i had been wondering for a long time about the project since the last Iso release was almost a couple years ago. it was another reason i stopped using it. i know some guys are probably gonna stick with it for a while but i wonder how many are gonna flood over to archbang?
There is also some threads over at the Sabayon forum about Fabio might dicontinue or hand sabayon over to someone else like what happened here with will xtream and mr green.
He always was the kindest guy, Corenominal. I got worried when he drove some people, some people that were contributing a lot to the forums and doing a lot of suggestions away (think it was beginning 2010); well I felt it like that. There was a period that it was becoming a group effort and he made it more personal project again and I always felt sorry about that. It's a big pity that he lets no one or a group of mods take over and continue the project.

This is a real shame. Curious to see what these other projects he mentioned may be.
