"Long story short (and you can read the long story in the entries directly preceding this one), I've been very happy with the first Toshiba running OpenBSD 4.4. The system is quite fast (not something OpenBSD is known for), so far all the applications perform extremely well, I've had no problems with X, every damn thing autoconfigures great, and I'm continuing to enjoy working in the system's default window manager, which is Fvwm (and which can be replaced/augmented with just about anything in the Unix-like world).

"So I've got that first Toshiba set up pretty well. I have Firefox, OpenOffice, the Geany text editor, the GIMP (there's no package or port for my favorite light image editor, MtPaint), gFTP, the ROX-Filer file manager (I've loved it since I first used it in Puppy Linux 2.13), Pidgin ... and the Opera Web browser.

"It's Opera that's driven me to set up a second laptop with Linux."
