"A year and half ago I ended a two year experiment using Windows as my daily driver OS. In short, I felt WSL had too many wrinkles that annoyed me. I switched back to Linux and it was like coming home after being away for too long.
Since then I've tried a number of distros and desktop environments, and I believe I have finally settled on Fedora KDE Plasma Desktop Edition."
"Some time ago I got a new IBM X40. It is now running Ubuntu Hoary and I must say that it is really an excellent piece of hardware. Everything but the SD card reader works out of the box, which of course also goes to show what a great distro Ubuntu is. Get’em both."
"I feel I just have to try Ruby on Rails, I mean everybody else is doing it and I don’t want to feel left out.
So I started setting it up on my X40 which runs Ubuntu. There is still no deb available for it, you have to use the Ruby Gems system to set it up. I dont know if this is good or bad - it seems like a Ruby CPAN and my feelings towards Perls CPAN are mixed."
"I have been using Gnome 2.8 for a couple of weeks now, and I must say that it is getting really good. Gnome was the first window manager I used when I started using Linux, but I soon became hooked on more lightweight alternatives such as Fluxbox and XFce4, as I did not think that Gnome offered that much to compensate for its relative slowness.
But since I got my laptop, I have grown tired of having to do everything manually whenever the environment changes."
