Goodbye to Linux (for now)

Well, my little experiment with Linux is over for now and I am back to
XP for my main OS. I’ve given it a go but it never worked quite right
for me. I spent more time trying to get things to work the way I wanted
versus actually being productive. I know from reading some of the
comments to my previous posts I’ll get some flack for that but that
doesn’t matter. It is my computer and as one of my friends said who
uses Linux exclusively said: use what OS is right for you regardless of
what it is. I’ve heard many a Linux user say that your computer should
work for you, not you for it. So XP it is (not spending the money on
Vista). So goodbye Linux (for now). I still have a few live distros to
spin up once in a while…

Frack! Frack! Frack!

Looks like the 4th season of Battlestar Galactica is the last. But on the same hand with the storyline of finding earth having a definite end is a good thing. But still....frack!

And then to top it off the character of Dr. Carson Beckett gets killed off on Atlantis last night. What is going on with all my favourite shows?!!!

Frack frack frack!!!
