I took the plunge and used the extended 17GB of my laptop disk space and created a primary Linux partition and installed an internal test version of Linux and all of the critical business tools I need to work at the office. Which tools you ask? Well, Lotus Notes, my AT&T dialer, Sametime, Eclipse, Workplace Managed Client (with the IBM Editors) and much more. I am so impressed with the entire installation and responsiveness of the OS and the applications as well. I know it will not be long before Linux is just as common an operating system as windows in business.
Now, I can not wait to get Hannover running on it!
