I can't wait.

Back in the days of 8080,Z80, 6504 chips, 4 digit displays on HPs, and a 20 column green screen they were a real challenge to do anything with.
Amigas were nice, PCs were crap, Novell 3.1, windows 3.11, then w95,w98,200,xp, Caldera, Storm, Suse, Mandrake, it was all such fun, trying to defeat the user interface.
These days, it just seems boring and safe.
I increasingly use my PC for surfing, Ebay, email, photos. music and very little else.
In fact, I just spent a week in Cornwall without booting my laptop once! no email, web surfing, no games.
The wife thinks I am ill.
Sorry mate but I wouldn't agree. I mean these days computers are powerful machines which can do almost everything media related. The only problem is Microsoft and their crappy OS which isn't able to handle apps properly but if you wanna stable and solid system get yourself Mac and there is no problems.

I've got better things to do than check to see if he's even mentioned Linux once in any of his other posts, but I would say this is curious posting behaviour. Needs watching IMO.
