In the beginning

To whom it may concern,

I am a Linux fanboy wishing to remain semi-anonymous. I have been using Ubuntu linux for a little over two years now and love every minute of it, until hardware failure caused my last system to become unusable.  Currently I am running a Lenovo IdeaCentre with Win 7 64-bit, and I'm having a little trouble getting used to it, but that's beside the point.  Once I have the right cables and hardware, I'll get this sucker dual-booting.

I'm starting this little blog to let the world know about my experience with Linux vs. Windows, for those wondering, I don't mess with Mac. Ever. I just don't like using the OS for some reason.

Things you'll expect to see in this blog:

1.  My random rants about why linux is better for my personal lifestyle
2.  Problems I run into when using Windows 7
3.  Reasons I miss Linux/Ubuntu (until I get my new system dual-booting)
4.  Side-notes on music production software that I experiment with.
5.  Reviews and such on various programs and tools that I have come across.
6.  Updates on my system configuration, what software I am using/replacing and why.
7.  Shitty game reviews (I'm not a big PC gamer, but I like sharing when I do find something good)
8.  Whatever else pops into my head that may be relevant to mine/your interests.

So if you are new to Linux (as I still am imho), want info on Windows 7 from a new user's perspective, or you want a little insight on how other people use either of these operating systems, click that little follow button and visit often!

Note:  I am currently student teaching and may have little time to update this blog, but I will update as often as I can!

  2. I've always been a fan of Windows OS, except Vista.

  3. Yeah Mike, Windows is a great OS for the average consumer. But depending on the software you need, your budget, and how much CLI stuff you do, it is not always the best choice.

  5. XP is great doomsday. I only have 7 cause it came pre-installed

  7. I'm an win7 / ubuntu dual-booter myself. Still think that I am a linux newbie too. Looking forward for your posts. Hopefully I learn something new and interesting

  8. to -M-: Is your drive partitioned or do you have multiple drives in your system?

  9. I'm a windows 7 64bit kind of guy.
