it's been four months
In the four months since the site has gone down, I've made some changes to my computer
- First of all, I got a new computer. My old laptop still ran well, but it was showing wear and tear otherwise. Keys were popping off of the keyboard, and they wouldn't go back on. The USB ports were getting finicky. So, I got a new laptop. Currently, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 as my main operating system (I'm not too fond of the GNOME interface used in the later version; I know I can change it, but I'm kinda lazy about it right now).
- I said that Ubuntu was my main operating system. Truth is, I'm running a few on this computer. I'm dual booting, having kept the default installation of Windows 7, shrinking it's partition. It works wonderfully this way.
- However, there are times when I don't want to restart the computer to get into Windows, especially for a Windows-only program I want to use (Luther's Works on DVD, using the Libronix/Logos interface), I have installed VMWare Player in Ubuntu. In VMWare, I have four virtual machines: Windows XP Pro, Haiku (a BeOS clone), Android (an older version), and Mac OS X Leopard. I play around with the other operating systems for fun, but I use Windows XP Pro for more than fun, as mentioned.
