OSNews, Generic OSes At the end of the year, mainly to shamelessly fill slow news around the holidays, OSNews usually asks the readers to share with all the other readers something about their computer setup. Since OSNews can be quite diverse when it comes to computing environments, these threads can often be quite interesting. This year, please chime in with the setup you use to read OSNews - computer, OS, software and maybe even provide screenshots or photos of your proud workspace. Has it changed a lot this year? Maybe switched browser, maybe switched OS even? Let everybody know!

Still the same old system. Still 8.04 Hardy LTS.

I have updated to Firefox 3.6Beta6pre from the PPA, I ahave also updated to Thunderbird 3.01 from the PPA.

I have installed OOo 3.11 from the deb on the Sun OOo download site.

I plan to upgrade to Lucid LTS in April. I have given up the update treadmill as the best experiences I have had with Ubuntu have been with the Dapper and Hardy LTS releases, though Feisty pretty good. I need a stable platform for the range of scientific software I run.

I am planning therefore, just to stay with the LTS releases and upgrade primarily the Mozilla Foundation stuff and Openoffice.
