Re: [LUG] Re: What is/was your work desktop? was Re: [LUG} SIMS
I am self employed so i don't have to conform to any stupid work policies. I run Fedora Core 3 on my desktop / server but due to having so many Windows users i run Windows XP pro, Windows server 2003 (domain controller) and Windows 98 all simultaneously under VM Ware on the aforementioned Linux box. I have just picked up a cheap laptop and currently dual boot XP Pro and Debian sarge (very impressed with Debian by the way and once i have it setup just right, i will use this 99% of the time on the laptop only booting into XP to test hardware etc)

When I was working at the University of Reading (10 years ago) the PCs
in the teaching rooms were re-booted every time anyone logged on (took
ages so if I had a class I had to get there 10 mins before to fire
them up) but the staff could do what they liked. Mostly they ran
Solaris (SunOS 5 at that time). Office staff had some form of MS and
kept their files in the central NFS file server. The policy at
Plymouth is appalling.
