Re: What OS do you use?

Loving Arch so much! It's got to be the fastest binary 64-bit OS out there. "When compared with the best performing Linux kernel (2.6.22 or 2.6.24) performance is 15% better." I was thinking that. :D I'm not sure if SMP scalability for databases = desktop performance, but it's a definite ...

Re: QWERTY versus Dvorak

I've been using colemak for the last few months. I'm already back to my old QWERTY typing speed. Not only is it very efficient, it also has keys in similar positions to the QWERTY to make it easier to learn.

Re: What OS do you use?

Running Ubuntu and Arch now. Loving Arch so much! It's got to be the fastest binary 64-bit OS out there. Either KDEmod or Openbox goes great with it. I just don't recommend it to a beginner.

My only regret is not having found Linux sooner.
