Recently, I love to read the blog The Setup. It includes many interviews about how people get their work done from web developers, kernel developers, professors, researchers, musicians, politics, poet etc.

It’s quite interesting and I can learn some new tools and new tricks to help myself in study and work. According to these interviews, most people use MacOS or Linux while the situation in China is quite different that Windows XP is still dominant.

After reading one of those interviews, I have give ArchLinux a try in VirtualBox. I think it takes too much time for me to configure a functional system with GUI. Anyway, I’m fine with Ubuntu now. I’ve transferred from Unity to Gnome3 recently.

In the future, I should:

  • buy some extra disks and set up a backup system;
  • add SSD to my laptop and desktop.
