Tux Machines (TM)-specific
The netbooks were perfectly nice,and represented a solid choice for schools. However, System76 also sent me a high-performance, consumer-oriented laptop to evaluate in the broader context of desktop Linux.
I use Ubuntu regularly, primarily as a server OS, and it’s been my primary desktop OS at various points since version 7. However, being the geeky sort of guy that I am, I don’t hesitate to either fire it up in a virtual machine or just burn a CD and wipe out any of the various computers that tend to float around my house and install the operating system. This is all well and good for geeky sorts of guys (and I mean “guys” in a very gender-neutral sense) or for businesses that either need or want to use Linux.
