After nearly 2 weeks since trouble occurred on my home PC, I’m back to normal, normal as in, I have a perfectly working computer once again. A system that works to the level that I’m happy with. This includes a massive upgrade in the operating system and a hard disk of more storage capacity, more cache memory and more RPM, 10k. Life is getting back to normal.
The new operating system is the LINUX Red Hat’s Fedora2 with the new 2.6 kernel. Very cool what they have done with the LINUX system. I am most impressed. I have being on the LINUX system for several years now. So, I’m quite accustom with the nuts and bolts of open source programs.
It’s funny, at university, everything is done on MS Windows, however, in advanced Computer Science classes, classes that I will never take but several of my fellow classmates are trudging through, they use Open Source. I mean, once I spread my wings in the great wide world, I will never use the Microsoft system anyways. My office computers will certainly not have it. I could argue that until hell freezes over.
I have more tools with this system and all my hardware is up and running. Usually, it takes at least 4 or 5 weeks to get everything perfect. Either I’m getting good at hacking and configuring, or the world of free-open source programmers are really getting good with their kraft? Needless to say…..I’m a happy camper, once again. What a way to spend the long weekend.
