    That is a lovely looking thing, it reminds me of the electronic smell when first opening the anti-static packaging. I was over the moon with my XFX board, the colours were awesome. Then again, I've chucked my rig for an Apple Mac Mini, which is equally good looking in my eyes. Ah, if only computers could cook meals, do my washing, tuck me into bed at night...

    Anti-static packaging is like love. I also love the packaging my asthma meds come in. And coffee. I'm a packaging dork. I routinely look at the bottom of cardboard boxes to see what weight the cardboard is.

    Are you one of those "aroused by unboxing" types? I'm waiting for an AOTS "WTF?" segment on it...

    Definitely dual-booting. I'm a huge dorky fan of PCLOS though. Best hardware recognition I have ever encountered. Jolicloud was a close second but I hate the whole HTML5 direction they went in.

    I've tried PCLinuxOS. I haven't heard of Jolicloud. I normally watch DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD. and put a new distribution on my laptop about once a month. On my main box I normally stick with Ubuntu, LinuxMint, Fedora or SuSE.

    I actually kind of like the new Ubuntu, with the Unity menu, for as much **** as it gets. It always makes my colors look weird though, never figured that out.

    Jolicloud is based on Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and it used to be amazing, but then they went with this whole HTML5 launcher thing and it got weird.
