It's been way too long since I made a proper post, although my Twitter aggregations are awesome!

AWESOME!!!

I'm about to embark on a grand journey into the land of Linux.
The only question is how far I dare to go down that murky path...
Dual-boot Windows/Linux, or scrap Windows altogether in favour of a Linux only install?
It's so rare these days that I play any computer games that actually require Windows or that aren't puzzle games that I'm sure have Linux counterparts (Minesweeper, okay, I said it, it's bloody addictive).

You're going to get screwed when you need to use IE one day though... Or run some random old application.

Why would I *need* to run IE?

Well, there's one application where I work that requires IE. It simply Will Not Work in Firefox - it insists on IE. And I have no choice; I have to use that application, even though it is a crock. (That's something I neglected to rant about. It's not directly related to the suckage I'm dealing with right now, though, so I'm not going to bother.)

So yes, there are times when one needs to run IE. Whether those times apply to you or not, I'm not prepared to comment on.

Maybe that should have read "Why would *I* need to run IE?"

exactly.

I vote for Linux, I made the move to xubuntu on my shitty old laptop and it runs quite a lot faster, breaks down a lot not at all anymore and get that feeling of superiority every time I boot up.

Yeah, that seems sensible.
