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!

Work laptop is running Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit.

Using GNOME and Metacity with Devilspie to maximize all windows and hide title bars.

Recently switched to left-handed mouse and Dvorak keyboard as my right hand was becoming sore, I suspect from the mouse.

Would like to find a mouseless setup, but a lot of programs need a mouse, specifically Firefox, Evolution, NetworkManager, and GNOME Control Panel. Evaluting vimperator or uzbl for browsing and various mouseless window managers including wmii, ion, ratpoison, awesome, and xmonad.

Home PC was upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7; I was reasonably happy with Vista, 7 doesn't seem any better. Wouldn't recommend upgrading if you already have Vista (but would if you're still using XP or older).

Finally, I'm looking for a netbook that comes with 3G mobile broadband, but I haven't been able to find any for sale in Australia other than the Dell Mini 9 and Samsung NC10 as part of a long-term mobile broadband plan that I don't want. The HP Mini is supposed to have an optional broadband module, but HP can't tell me how or where to get it.
