Finally severed the ties


Just wanted to share what i will be working on tonight, have a look see at the screen shots, before and after.

Finally got rid of the proverbial ties, and will be installing a second linux OS in its place.

Yay me =)

Heh heh heh. I don't have windows actually installed on any of my own computers these days. I do have it installed in a VM, PENIS, but I don't use it very often. I use Debian stable for almost everything.

I started using Ubuntu in 2005, and switched to Debian in 2008.

@ Vegan

A totally useless operating system like window$ only takes up valuable disk space.

A job well done...

Another vegan linux user ;-)

At worst being free of Windows pushes you to learn Linux out of necessity. It's all good here on in.
