Hi Lyle and Scott,
Welcome to the Dallas Ubuntu Mailing List. I joined sometime last year and
then sort of dropped off IRC while the depredations of multiple computers
running disparate OSs brought weariness to my soul. It was either that or
getting my Battle.Net account hacked.
Anyway, I'm in the process of consolidation etc, but meanwhile I reinstalled
Ubuntu on the Macbook Pro and on a PC which I have named, "The Jet," after
its stock Pentium IV fan. It turns out installing one quiet fan causes a
power grab with the other generals, and in the ensuing tide forthwith
another upstart begins a new roar.
In the summer, the new Mac OS X Lion drops support for Core Duo. I decided
to try Windows 7 on a 1st-gen Macbook Pro, but I couldn't keep it around.
I'm no POSIX nerd, and I prefer a nice, shiny GUI like any n00b, but the
idea of not having text-based tools *exactly like Ubuntu*, and various
fragmented IDEs offering "Windows SDK" and "DirectX" "XNA" "Express" "MSDN
TechNet" "C# IE9," was too much. Give me my gcc and K&R C; non-commercial,
hobbyist ambitions - or lack thereof - notwithstanding, that's where I want
to be. So back to Ubuntu post-haste.
Nice to meet you both,
