Still a mixed bag, but it's coming on good

This week I had the pleasure of running a Webex session directly from my Ubuntu Desktop.

It was the first time I didn't have to hop into a VM via rdesktop in order to connect. The webex client uses Java and was working fine, untill I tried to resize the screen (that failed miserably and gave me a very nastily distorted view).

But in all cases, with the excpetion of a few bumps here and there I have to admit that I'm spending more and more time on Linux, even during work hours, and I am only getting on Windows VM's to do office work or support work (as our software isn't running on Linux yet - and I can only dream that'll happen one day)!
