As an early Christmas present, my lovely wife allowed me to purchase a computer to replace my aging work machine. So I bought a new gaming computer.
Wait a steenking meenoot. I know what you’re thinking. I was supposed to be buying a work computer. Here’s how you too can manage to get a new gaming computer any time you need a work computer.
I purchase the snazziest gaming computer I can afford without making us homeless, then relegate the old gaming machine to work detail. In this case, I’m getting a quad core 2.4 ghz/4mb ram with a 9xxx Nvidia card as a work machine. The new machine is almost identical, but with dual graphics cards.
<insert evil laugh here>
I’ve already burnt the latest iso’s for the distro’s I’m going to try on it. I don’t know what I’ll settle on but I can say that I’m going for ease of use. I don’t think I’ll stick with Dreamlinux this time around. I’m probably either going to go with Mint, Ubu or Fedora. Fedora is comfortably familiar, Ubu is popular enough to have tons of apps and mods available and Mint takes a kitchen sink approach to dirty stuff, which I like.
It will be the first time I’ve ever run linux on a machine from this decade, so I’m understandably excited to see the results.
I’m wondering if any of them will install drivers for the stupid miniviewer that’s built into the case.
