It's also been a few years since I've used Lunix - is it ready for the desktop?
Got grades in, I must have done rather mediocre on the final exam in the methods class, as I pulled out an A- instead of an A. Meh. I did well on the first exam, A- on the second, and I feel like I didn't do well on the final, but I'd have to pick it up to see. But I know it just wasn't good.
I'm looking for small projects to do over the next couple weeks until school starts up. One will be, probably, setting things up with Lunix if I get that hard drive.
One of our friends seems to be having marital problems, which is rather unfortunate.
Figuring out travel for Christmas, weddings, whatever.
Have to figure out what distro to use. Only real 100% requirement for me is that it works with R Studio and my hardware. There are packages for it for Ubuntu, but I'm wondering whether Xubuntu or Lubuntu or something would work (Mint probably would). Pretty much all I do is surf the web, watch stuff on youtube, watch DVDs, and do R programming (soon to include C, sometimes includes Python or Octave). Oh, occasionally do remote connection to campus network in order to run SAS stuff or get files off their servers or whatever. There's some chess software that's windows only, but that's what dual booting would be for. So, anyway, the real bottleneck is what R Studio will run on and what can run on my hardware.
