My desktop machine is a Ubuntu machine for now. Mostly OK but causing issues from time to time. When they insisted on "unity" for my desktop I rebelled and went for good old gnome.

While they worked I used the console - 80 column text on a 30" monitor to use irc. I did not need my reading glasses!

Of course, the answer is, in any god like ceremony, especially pagan...
