Yeah, I know it's been a long time since an update, so please forgive me. I just wanted to tell you about the laptop debacle. I am not very happy with my laptop. Don't get me wrong. It's a very fast, stable, reliable, pretty machine. Unfortunately, its video is integrated to the motherboard, which stands already as a strike against it. The most unfortunate thing is that its performance is hideously poor in linux. So, alack, I have downgraded my system back to Windows, but have forsaken the default windows shell for something a little more modern. So far, I am quite pleased. If I get the initiative, I'll do a screenshot.
