  1. Fascinating.

    I’d be interested sometime in hearing where the disagreements with the computer set-up arise. I tend to also tweak where I put things, and how I organize them. But my organizational issues tend to involve data files, which is never an issue. I’m guessing that your argument with the os is over libraries and preferences files?

    My initial issue with GUI systems (back in the early 90s) was that I was used to specifying in DOS how things worked. It was difficult to get used to handling things differently. With 95, 98, and XP, the bewildering array of files (particularly when i began seeing strangers like dlls) got to the point where I gave up on “tweaking” my Windows systems. They are simply too complex, with a bewildering array of ongoing processes.

    Good luck with your installation. I actually know of a Mac Mini on the Clemson campus that was set up as a triple boot system: XP, OS-X, and Linux. Some guy did that for his girl friend. 🙂

  2. Hey Tom
    I was glad to see you on the SOS spotlight this am. We live just a few doors down and sometimes know so little about each other. I will add you to my blog list and enjoy getting to know you better…virtually!
