Linux With Enlightment 0.17 released, it's no surprise the Linux distribution that uses E17 for its desktop is rushing to release a new version that uses it. Look for Bodhi 2.2.0 in January, featuring the stable E17 desktop. If you've never experienced it, Bodhi is a Ubuntu derivative, and it offers more configurabality than you can imagine. Have you been complaining about Unity and Gnome3 taking away your options? Bodhi and E17 bring them back - and many more, too.

You're making me feel old. ;) While my first few computers could count their memory in tens of kilobytes, my first x86 machine was a high school graduation gift in 1995, a Texas Instruments 4000M laptop with a whopping 4MB of RAM and a 200MB hard drive, with a 486SX CPU.

Believe it or not, I wish I still had that beast. It was my introduction to "modern" PC gaming with Doom and Myst, as well as my first DOS/Windows machine. I know it would be about as useful as a pet rock today, but it would be fun to dig out and play around with every now and then.

Yeah, at work back in those days I was running AutoCAD on a machine like that. Amazing what we were able to do - the office had a 386 for smaller drawings and a 486 for the big stuff. Imagine considering the 486 your "big" machine these days.
