Those familiar with The Road to Linux will know that we’ve dabbled with Linux for many years, and tend to use it a lot in the server room, and if “Mac OS NeXT” hadn’t come around to rescue Apple from the pre-X era, I’d probably be using Linux on the desktop right now. (Anything but Windows!)

That’s changed a bit, and I am now using Linux on the desktop, as time allows. I’ve finally gotten hardware capable of running as a desktop machine with a real live GUI and everything. It’s no speed demon, but it seems to handle Fedora Core 1 ok. As of yet, I have not really stressed the system, I’ve mainly just been installing and configuring old favorites like Firefox, Thunderbird and jEdit (which required Java as well.)

The Road to Linux continues! (And I might even update it one of these days…)
