As I am home for a week off from school for spring break, I decided that it wasn’t worth the effort to bring my Ubuntu machine home with me. So now after about 6 weeks of using Ubuntu primarily, I am forced to use Windows XP once again for 9 days, as that is what is installed on my laptop. Already I am missing some of the basic abilities of Gnome, multiple workspaces. Multiple times I have found myself looking down to the lower right corner hoping to find the workspace switch, with no luck.
In good news, I am experiencing Verizon FiOS for the first time at home. We had it installed shortly after I returned to school for the spring semester. Below is the results from one of the speed tests that I have run since returning home. (Our plan is 5/2 Mbps.)
