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!

I've been using Ubuntu steady for about five or six years, ever since I dropped dual-boot Gentoo and Windows XP (the latter for working on Flash animations). I'm at 9.10, using GNOME (which I'm very comfy with, for the most part, although I'm really scared of GNOME Shell and may switch to KDE then).

My computer is a hacked-together piece of who-knows-what. It's an Athlon XP 2200 (I think -- it's hard to keep track), with 1 GB of RAM and an old Matrox G400 dual-head video card that I threw in there after my nVidia died. I do all my web development, graphic design, and photo editing on this machine, and I just can't stand the clunky workflow of Windows.
