I'm a Linux user, and would rather use Linux than Windows, my problem
is that I was born far too late and have been "spoiled" (more like
"corrupted") by "modern computing" (also known as MySpace and the
Pretty Picture Generators of Windows Aero and Compiz).
Of course, what passes for "modern computing" for the majority of the
population can easily be performed on an iPhone without anything
really missing. (In fact, most people could trade in their PCs for
iPhones and lose nothing)

I always wanted to get a SGI box and try to run IRIX on it.
