    Cool COTH LUG!

    Anyone else running Linux? I'm using Ubuntu.

    I have Puppy Linux, but have only just gotten it. Waiting for my computer to return from the shop before putting a flavor of Linux on it.

    I run a red hat farm at work, been using linux of diverse flavors since 1995, starting with Slackware 2.0 (And I still prefer slack for servers...) went Mac at home, since it's OpenBSD in the core with handy, easy, bmindless tools do do the stuff I do the hard way at work... while preserving my ability to do things that may need to happen.My web server for the farm is CentOS with toys like a backend control suite on a dedicated server at GoDaddy.

    Right now, I'm picking out the parts for my new Linux desktop build that I'm putting together next year. 32GB of RAM, high-end quad-core CPU with integrated graphics, six 4TB HDDs for storage, modular power supply, four port eSATA storage card, an M-Disc Blu-Ray burner, and an mSATA SSD for my OS and programs. All in a mini-tower package.

    I have an older laptop made up out of spare parts that's about to get Ubuntu installed on it again. Never been a dedicated user though. Lex, your setup sounds sweet.

    Looks like Microsoft is looking into releasing software on Linux in the next few years, specifically their Office suites and associated networked cloud services.

    Huh. That's interesting. I wonder how many Linux users would readily switch over, given the prevalence of free alternatives like OpenOffice. My personal preference on a Windows machine is Google Drive for everything.

    If it works - and I'm sure it will because they have had internal builds for a long time - it will definitely make Linux viable for workplace use as the alternatives don't have full compatibility and have a lot of glitches when dealing with MS Office authored files.

    I have no idea what any of y'all are talking about, but what I am quite sure of is that all of you are geniuses (geniusi?).

    I work for the feds, which means we just got Windows 2007... last year. So since I do almost all of my computer-related activities here at work (I'm here more than I am at home, it seems); I'm ashamed to say that whatever the government uses is the only thing I'm familiar with.

    Suffice to say, I'm always impressed by the people who are so technologically advanced... I just hope that someday I (and maybe even the federal government!) can catch up with you.

    While we're on the subject - can anyone tell me, IS there a decent Twitter client for Linux? I'm using Hotot ATM which is about the best I've found so far but really has a long way to go before it gets as good as TweetDeck.

    From what I know, none of the many Twitter clients for Linux are great. Even though they joined the Linux Association last year, Twitter refuses to release an official client for Linux. There's a Twitter development page that has a bunch of clients and code but I don't know if many of those are for Linux.

    I may be headed towards a Windows/Ubuntu dual boot at some point this year. Configuring/reconfiguring JACK every time I open or close an audio app is driving me insane. Life's too short!

    dual boot is the best of both worlds.
