Windows Vista Point

Vista Point, The Wow starts now.

I can’t be the only one who’s thought it. (I, however, take the Alexander Ave exit to get to work.)

In related news, I’m planning on moving my primary laptop (Thinkpad T42) over to Ubuntu (for reasons mentioned earlier). It’s been running just fine on my X23 for the last few months, and at work since I started at FM. I like the painless package management (Synaptic). I like that I can do development on it. I like that there’s a new release every 6 months.

I will miss Fireworks MX 2004, but remain hopeful that Wine will one day support it (or Adobe will open source it). It appears that Fireworks 8 works!

Update: For future reference, the [surprisingly small list of] apps that I use on Windows, and their Linux equivalents, where different.
