So, here I sit with a new computer, running Windows Vista, possibly the worst reviewed permutation of Windows since ME. Thus begins the noble experiment. I plan, by November, to be Windows free. My current setup looks like this:
Windows Vista Home Premium with...
- Macromedia (not adobe) Studio 8
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- MS Office
Really, the only thing I can't live without is Studio 8 (particularly Fireworks 8, which happens to be the only one that doesn't work well on Wine or Crossover Office.
In spite of the fact that I'm running a 64 bit machine, I hope to install the theme and packages associated with Ubuntu Studio (shown below), which only comes in 32 bit configurations.
For my Web Design Suite (Macromedia Studio 8), I intend to run Windows 2000 within Innotek's Virtual Box.
Stay tuned for my triumphs and miserable failures.
