CrunchBang 10 update split into two editions (The H)

The H takes a look at the latest release of CrunchBang, which is available in "stable" and "backported" editions. "The stable edition ships with Debian's 2.6.32 stable kernel and X.org 7.5, while the backported version includes the more recent Linux 3.2 kernel and version 7.6 of X.org. The backported edition also automatically tracks any packages that enter the Debian backports repository; both versions of CrunchBang 10 R20120207 use backported versions of Iceweasel 10, the re-branded version of Firefox for Debian, and the Geany text editor, specifically Geany 0.20. The new 32-bit images also ship with the 686 kernels instead of the 486 kernels as, [Philip] Newborough says, "any system that cannot run the 686 flavour kernel is going to struggle to run #! at all"."
