It's a good time to be a geek.

Work supplied us with new HP Tablet-PCs.

I immediately installed Ubuntu as my OS. And all I can say so far is that I love it.

Running OpenOffice and PenOffice onboard and Google Apps for Educators on the Cloud. Got my Delicious (a brand spankin' new account, no less) and Diigo add-ons working the scene on Firefox, and got Tweet Deck handling four different Twitter accounts.

I'm one happy teacher.

Now, I'm looking into what to do for my personal machine. Leaning towards a higher-end Ubuntu-running netbook.

It's a good time to be a geek.

ps -- Just a reminder that the 'Concerning Tech' contest closes tomorrow at midnight EST.


  1. Sounds great. I'm looking into using Chrome OS on my netbook when it comes out. Techcrunch is reporting that Chrome OS will be released next week.

    I'm thinking of putting Ubuntu on my older laptop. Keep us informed about how things go.

  2. Thanks for the update. I have been planning to load Ubuntu on an older laptop but was a little concerned about it performance. I use the same open source software as listed above so guess it is time to do it....

  3. A form or system of communication. Also: A substance for the artificial cultivation of organisms.
