I’m a Linux systems administrator. This means I am not as skilled at supporting and maintaining windows based systems as I am Linux systems. As such my personal laptop has Debian installed, and I have a number of Debian servers (some hosted at a VPS provider, some at home). I also have a Desktop that I built myself, using high spec components (at the time). As the desktop was intended to be used for gaming I bought a Windows license for it. At the time the intent was to install Debian, and then create a KVM virtual machine to run Windows in. However out of impatience, laziness, and hubris (I could always fix it later right?) I installed windows directly onto the system drive. And now the hinge on my laptop lid is broken. As my blog is split across two git repositories (one private, and one public) and publishing new posts involves a workflow that requires me to use a number of linux based systems this is a sub-optimal state of affairs.
