OS Agnostic?!?


Using Windows makes you appreciate Linux more, using Linux makes you appreciate Windows more.

ThinkPad X250

So in the midst of Western white privilege, I sunk a grand on a ThinkPad X250. Yeah, it has two batteries but I have not managed to install Linux on the M.2 SSD yet. Cracking the case open, (possibly) voiding the warranty, was a very anxious 😓 moment! I think I broke a clip, one screw cross threaded, sigh 😢, one rubber dome thing, goes where exactly? Damn my greed, but I now own the hardware.

Linus Torvalds

To paraphrase Linus, I like computers because you tell them what to do & they do exactly that & no more. Maybe I’m on the autistic spectrum, but life is not like that!

Built on Ubuntu 14.04

Lenovo ThinkPad E325

Dual-Core AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics

8GB memory

AMD/ATI Wrestler Radeon HD 6320

Samsung 840 Pro

(Build quality on this faux ThinkPad was appalling & failed within roughly three years. Hinge stress point ruptured chassis. Would not recommend.)

Linux Compatible Wireless PCI Card

Tired of burning through your nano USB n 150 adaptors? Want a dual antenna 300 rated wireless PCI card with great Linux compatibility for your tower? Dual booting Win 7?

Then look no further than the Monoprice PCI Wireless Lan 802.11N (105338) at Bambuzo. They checkout with PayPal so no typing in your address. Although twice the asking price of other nix cards they ship to Europe, & hopefully, you get what you pay for. Linux compatibility was plug & play & works post suspend to RAM. I have not tested with 7 yet but will report back soon…


Driver seems baked into 7 so no need to spin up CD!
