As a Linux geek, I don't usually wrestle with Windows problems (but when I do, I prefer Windows 7); this week, I did a little bit of system administration and troubleshooting at work, since I could physically manage the machines in question. There's no doubt I need to improve my phone support abilities, but since I was available in person, I took advantage.
A month after getting my Android phone, I bought my first laptop. Personal laptop, that is; I've had laptops for work, and I've found them to be highly convenient when traveling or noveling, so I finally decided to get one of my own. More momentously, after years of running Windows on my personal machines but Linux on my work machines, I decided I was ready to make the jump to a Linux-only environment, meaning the new laptop would have to run Linux.
