This used to have a list of my computers. At this point, I think it’s just relevant to list that I run the following OSes:
- Raspbery Pi OS
- Fedora (usually the latest or within two releases of the latest)
- Ubuntu LTS (various releases)
- Windows 10
- CentOS 7 and 8
I’m running Linux on everything from full-sized large motherboard computers to laptops to netbooks to Raspberry Pis. Windows runs on my gaming computer.

Since your reviews are very interesting;
We want to know if it’s possible and ok for you if we traduce your new reviews from english to french and post them in our website. Of course there will be a direct link, website name and even author name if you want in the top of the traduced article with a thanks word.
Yes, that would be fine. Thank you for asking.
nice post man but i wonder how your wife manages with xandros, it kinda sucks. I only used OpenSuse 10.2 but that was ages ago, since then I favored intel Macs.
Any link where we can get your linux reviews ? thanks
For the most part, just click on the Linux topic to see the reviews.
