Come On In, The Water’s Fine
James Robertson is giving up Windows at home, because of the administration load. He joins a growing chorus of people switching to Mac and some to Linux instead of quietly accepting the forced march to the Vista compound.
In my household, I am slowly upgrading existing Windows computers to Linux. Currently, I do not own any Windows machines myself, although there are still three in the house. I have recently been watching DVDs, watching videos on YouTube, playing streaming net radio, and watching Numb3rs, and using hotel wireless networks reliably. All the same things I did before and more, with little change to the quality. One improvement is in the reliability of wireless networking. The dropped connections seem to have decreased since the switch.
So Mr. Robertson, even though you will not be able to push Windows out of your workplace, I congratulate you on your decision to save yourself a little hassle at home.
