Opening Windows

For the past few years I have rejected the Microsoft Windows operating system in favor of Linux Ubuntu.

Open source software, software upgrades and updates every 6 months are all very appealing.

However, I am tired of trying so hard to accomplish a task that takes too long in Linux that is a breeze in Windoze.

So, I fired up a clean install of Windows 8 (still hate the interface), re-added Office 2010, Photoshop and Lightroom. I was missing these apps the most. Everything else is synchronized via Google products.

Oh, and where did Microsoft hide the primary button?

Digital House Cleaning

Since my digital sabbatical started yesterday morning, I’ve decided to clean up and purge a few things.

I removed the Linux and Windows 7 partitions and did a clean install of Ubuntu 13 Beta Raring Ringtail as the primary operating system. Also added Virtualbox.

Inside the virtual hard disks I am running Windows 7, Fedora 18 and pretty soon Linux Mint.

These will be for various programs, testing and needs.
