Where and on What do you use?

Link to this post 15 May 09

Throughout the day I imagine most of us go through several different computers. Start a list of all the computers you touch during a normal day with what it runs and what you use it for :D

Photos are bonus points!

I start.

Here's my desk at work: It's an Atom powered thin-client connecting via NX to a Fedora 10 server running the IceWM window manager:

This is my primary work area at home: KVM over ethernet connecting to a Fedora 10 machine. This is what I use probably 95% of the time. The desktop shown is XFCE, but I also routinely use IceWM and sometimes OpenBox on it as well. This KVM also connects to a separate Vista box for playing games along with an XP box that runs a SageTV server.

I also have a media work area which runs a Windows XP box for using applications like Reaper and Premiere CS4
