As some of you know, I have been using Crunch­bang Lin­ux (#!) for some time now. How­ev­er, those days seem to be at an end. A friend of mine told me that #! had been dis­con­tin­ued over the week­end, so I went to check it out for myself. When I got to the site in the lat­est new sec­tion was just one post, titled “The End”. Cer­e­mo­ni­al, the man who start­ed and had kept #! going, had decid­ed that the OS was no longer as use­ful as it could be and was not going to be kept up any longer. The site is not going down, as Cer­e­mo­ni­al said “Regard­ing what will hap­pen to the Crunch­Bang forums, they will remain online. Ulti­mate­ly, they belong to the com­mu­ni­ty and so it will be for the com­mu­ni­ty to decide what hap­pens to them”.

I know this is not life-chang­ing news for most, but to me it is like los­ing an old friend.
