I made it back to upstate New York from Kuala Lumpur via Shanghai and Chicago. It was not stress-free, especially the first connection. I’ll have more to report, with photos, tomorrow.
Tonight I’m downloading Ubuntu 7.04. I’m still planning to be on Linux and Windows-free by the end of 2007, though I’ve had less time than I thought to fully make the transition before now. There are also a few required app situations that should resolve themselves within a few month. More, also, on the installation of 7.04 tomorrow.
