Linux Desktop Experiment 2014
I really just can’t be bothered installing Windows 7 any more so fuckit. I’m on (Arch) Linux now and by jaysus I’m sticking with it.
I’ve all of my email going into my Google Apps account (grandfathered in from when GA was free for private individuals). This is great because I don’t have to worry about Evolution being crap any more.
I’m using BTSync to replicate my documents and photos and stuff to my server, which should make any OS reinstalls relatively painless. I was using Owncloud but its client was causing excessive I/O, making my laptop pretty unusable for long periods of time. It’s a bit of a pity because its webdav stuff was useful. What I might do, though, is have BTSync dump its files into a folder that’s synced with Owncloud, giving me the best of both worlds (for double the disk space, natch).
