Technology MADNESS!!!

1 comment January 8th, 2009at 11:18am Posted by Eli

I have spent a good chunk of two nights messing around with it, but I finally managed to install Ubuntu Linux (“Intrepid Ibex”) onto a USB thumbdrive that I can actually boot and run my laptop from.  In fact, I’m writing my post in Linux running off my USB drive RIGHT NOW (well, not exactly right now, as this is a time-release post, but it is written in Linux).  It’s not all the way there in terms of user-friendliness or hardware compatibility, but Linux has come a long, long way since I first started dabbling with it in the days before Windows XP came out, and it’s pretty close to a normal Windows/MS-Office experience now.  I just have to mount my Windows partitions so I can get at all my stuff, and then I should be golden.

Also: I totally want a 2-terabyte(!) SD card now.  God only knows when we’ll actually see SD cards that big, but I love the idea of being able to store all my data on one tiny little card.  And if I could  put a 2TB card in my camera, I would probably never have to delete a photo off of it for as long as I live.  And just think about iPods and iPhones with capacities measured in TB instead of GB.  Awesome.
