2010: The Year of Linux on MY Desktop

December 31, 2009

After continually trying Windows 7 (with decent hardware. A 3GHz Phenom II X4, 5.5GB of RAM and an HD 3870), and disliking it, I’ve decided that in 2010 I will switch to Linux. Yes, for real this time. After using Windows XP (currently using XP x64), and having experienced the differences between the XP and Vista/7 interface, I’ve decided that Linux is my best bet. However, my only problem is the fact that ATI’s Linux drivers are noticeably inferior to NVIDIA’s drivers. I’ve decided that I will switch to Linux before December 31, 2010. I think a year is more than enough time to migrate over to Linux. Don’t you think so?

I’m hopeful that it will work this time. Wish me luck.

EOTDW: Has it been that long already?

December 22, 2009

As we’re coming close to the final week of 2009, and the final week of this decade I’ve decided to write up a few posts on it. From the beginning (January 1st, 2000) all the way to the end (December 31, 2009), I’ll discuss the changes in technology. From the dawn of the 1GHz x86 processor, all the way to the latest multi-core monster of a processor. I’ll discuss what has changed with the technology we use, and what has not. Stay tuned.

It’s Like Everyone’s Blog is Dying.

December 19, 2009

The last post I made on my blog was on November 15. The last time I posted multiple entries in one week was months ago. And then there’s the fact that Andrew Turnbull has stopped blogging, and that Don’s blog is down. It makes me think, do most blogs die within a year? Hell, do most blogs die within 1 or 2 postings? (My original blogs did just that). Do we stop because everything we wanted to blog about was already blogged about? Or do we stop because we get tired of posting a lot, and finally just forget about?

It’s a question I’ve been meaning to ask, and I’ve always wanted to hear the answer. And then there’s the question of “Should I stop with this blog? With just 5,037 views since I started it just over a year ago.
