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!

My setup

I have four computers currently.

gandalfwhite: Zotac IONITX Atom motherboard passively cooled in a Mini-ITX case. It's running Ubuntu Server 9.10 and does all the file/media serving tasks for my home.
aragorn: MacBook Pro 15" as my general usage laptop, running OS X 10.6/Ubuntu 9.10 dual boot.
gollum: Acer Aspire One as a netbook that I keep on me at all times, running Ubuntu Desktop 9.10.
sauron: C2Q 2.83GHz, 8GB DDR3, 4x 750GB 7200RPM HDD, Radeon 4870x2 2GB desktop in a nice CoolerMaster case without any of those tacky blue lights! For games and programming, so it's running Win7 for the former and Ubuntu (with 10.4 repository) for the latter: http://lh4.ggpht.com/_v2Eq7wZ3xBY/SvPngtSWANI/AAAAAAAAAWs/RnUqt1Bp9...

A PS3, 360 elite, gandalfwhite and sauron are plugged into my 42" panny plasma in the lounge. A second PS3 is plugged into a 32" LCD in the bedroom. Fixed machines are connected to one of two gigE switches and wireless to one of two 802.11n routers. gandalfwhite is also plugged into a 1080p LCD on my desk (in clone mode). It has a wireless mediaboard/mouse or a 360 controller for using it, because I tend to play games on the sofa on either it or my PS3/360, as well as a wired Microsoft natural keyboard and Logitech gaming mouse.
