New StuffPosted: June 27, 2011
Since building my first new computer in 9 years just a few months ago, i have been able to completely change the way i use my computer. My hardware before was not nearly powerful enough for me to do much with it, even on Linux. But now i have new hardware, while its not the latest and greatest, its still much more powerful than what i had before. It works very well under Linux, with the exception of my inbuilt sound, which did not seem to work on Ubuntu, but works fine under Arch Linux.
Since i got this new hardware, i have spent many hours gaming, compiling code, browsing the net and enjoying being able to do more than 1-2 things at once. People also seem to think that hardware compatibility on Linux is terrible, but its not. Sure, some companies devices work terribly on Linux (some of the older Lexmark printers for example) but a lot of hardware works just fine.
Expect more frequent blogging from me in the future.
