Crunchbang or Archbang?

Crunchbang is my favourite but for some reason its installer sucks compared to Archbang.  Archbang is also a rolling release.  Crunchbang is far more polished out the box and just looks so nice whilst it runs beautifully.  Archbang loads much faster but does not have the look and feel of Crunchbang.  I did try Crunchbang on another older machine and that machine did not like the distro at all.  The same computer works perfectly with Archbang so that one was a no brainer.  Overall I'd always go with Crunchbang first.  Take a look at both and test them out on a live USB first.  Both will make older machines run like grease lightening in comparison to the NSA spyware known as Windows.  You do not have to use pirate Windows XP's like Tiny XP or Micro XP and then have to hog your resources with firewalls, virus software and anti-malware.  Both Crunchbang and Archbang are totally free-to-use GNU/Linux distributions and highly secure until you start installing java, flash and skype of course.  Make sure you remember with Archbang to edit the pacman.conf file to highlight your local servers during installation or straight after.  Then after booting Archbang you execute the terminal and use the command 'pacman -Syy' before doing any more like 'pacman -Syu'.

You can also look at AntiX based on Debian
