Desktop Linux is great. I’ve discovered KMail and Kontact which so far seems to be a little nicer to use than Evolution. Still having a few issues with sound which is a bummer as I love the interface on amaroK and can’t wait to start using it properly.
The other day I upgraded the old IBM Netfinity with a 250GB hard drive. Had no major issues changing over the home partition. Picked up a printer on Trademe for a fiver, and got that installed and set up with CUPS in no time. Can now print from anywhere around the house (or garden) thanks to that and the wireless network.
