While the times, they are a changin’, Linux still holds an almost mystical hold on me.  For at least the last ten to twelve years it has been the main OS in my life.  Things changed this January, though I’m not sure yet as to the outcome of that change, it was mostly of necessity.  Still technically (I suppose) using the Kernel, just a lot more expensive of an OS.  Being hardware specific as it is as well, actually requiring and supposedly only running the one OS.  Money can and does change things sometimes.  We’ll see if it’s for the better in this case.  Over 30 years of disappointment, sorrow, mental anguish, burnout, career ending pain, etc. (you get the picture)  has ensured MS will never cross the boot partition of any system I own again.

By now I’m sure you’ve been able to divine, through your special powers as readers here, what OS and new laptop was purchased in Jan.  I’m going to hold out on you just a bit longer so I have a better grip on it myself when I bring it out.  Make no mistake loyal Linux users and fans.  Linux is still my ‘precious’!  Always will be.  In particular VSIDO.  The (at least 22 year old!) thinkpad running EVERYTHING for my shop and garage runs VSIDO.  Current uptime on that particular little beast as an example is currently 244 days, give or take an hour or two since I was there to look.  Two other computers here also run the VSIDO Linux distribution, one as a media server,  the other as a ‘very high end’ gaming laptop using the Steam application effortlessly on the yes, VSIDO distribution!  The front page of this website leads you to it if you’re interested!  (okay, here too; https://vsido.org)

Check back.  Over the next few weeks some decisions are being made to determine the fate of how I continue and maintain this site.  Whether for strictly personal use or continue in the same vein of the last couple of decades.  We’ll see…

Thanks for visiting…
