And now for something completely different...

I've decided that 2014 is the year that I finally really embrace some of my hobbies, and one of my greatest hobbies - the one I've turned into a career, in fact - is computing. I used to do it for fun, and I still do to some extent. But I'm not really talking social media and the like, I'm talking experimenting with operating systems, running a BBS, programming, retro-computing etc... So, among all the other things I'd like to tinker with in 2014, I'm considering digging out the CDs and installing OS/2 Warp 4.0 on one of my netbooks, and using that fairly exclusively for at least 30 days during 2014. I'm likely to cheat a little bit, as I have multiple Android devices that I'm not likely to give up, and I have to use Windows 7 on my work computer. Also, I may just set it up under a virtual machine in order to keep things fairly simple, and allow me to switch back to Linux after my experiment is over. Even if I don't use it exclusively, the plan is to find software to use for the things I do daily, so that I could make the switch if I had to. This could be fun, and I'll post my progress once I decide when to start.
