    @ragecoder I'd like to be on Linux but I need to use Adobe shit on Windows. Working on converting my media server from Win7 to Linux – probably FreeNAS.

    Welcome to the Linux world! I'm a huge fan of manjaro KDE. Elementary is pretty too. :)

    @elazar exactly. The old computer is used for som browsing and games, and the games are not so heavy and runs perfectly fine.

    For development I got a portable from work with windows 10
