I'm a die-hard Debian fan myself. Had it for years now Smile

Correct me if I'm wrong but I've always thought of Debian being on more older computers / hardware, Might be worth a shot using it on a few old laptops of mine if that is the case.

Like most Linux systems, it is what you make it to be :p I got the minimal distro, removed all non-barebone components and built my stuff from the ground as I wanted. As I was a  huge fan of crunchbang in the past I got myself Openbox, Tint2 panel & compton to simulate that look. Haha but nothing beats Gentoo and LFS though.

I'm not aware of Debian being a number one choice for old computers. It depends on how old the computer is, but I personally think PuppyLinux or Knoppix would be a better choice for those systems. But indeed debian does not require that many resources compared to other systems, especially windows :p So you may have a point, Debian will run fairly well on old computers. But that's also one of their strengths in my eyes, fast and lightweight!

Here is my desktop :p (I blacked some stuff out)

I personally always go back to Xubuntu (Ubuntu + XFCE). It is lightweight, quick and clean.

At work, I typically use Debian (because why not?)

On servers, I typically use Debian or Ubuntu, again. I have no real preference when it comes to servers, honestly. I just use what works well for what I need.

Looks nice could you post that wallpaper?
I was thinking of switching over to something like i3 or Awesome to enhance the minimalistic feel.

Also confused on to why you blacked out the CPU and GPU?

Windows XP Service Pack 1 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

But seriously i am on Backbox Ubuntu. Comes pre-installed with a lot of tools i use, your general text editors, Tor all that good stuff. But is easily extendible and "hacker friendly" in the sense that it allows for a lot of customisation. which of course i enjoy. I run a couple of VM's as well, REMnux for your odd RevEng, Windows 7 to test malware. And i run a dev version of RHEL.
