IPv6 Over Social Networks
I don't care how much "publicity" they throw at IPv6, if the actual network admins don't adopt it, it will not go anywhere fast.
I know, for my company at least, we don't want it because it not as intuitive as IPv4. AND the users already know how to use the "192.168. ... " terminology. To try to teach a user IPv6 is the same as trying to get them to take their heads out of their arses !!!
I typically stick with the same desktop environment
I have 2 totally different computers on my desk and I switch between them constantly using a KVM switch.
I have an Ubuntu desktop that I use for my "administrative" tasks - rdp, ssh, telnet, ftp, bittorrent, etc. And I have a MacBook Pro that I use for the rest of the stuff I have to do - IM, VMWare Fusion, etc. I browse from both & from my Windows VM depending what site I want to hit.
OSes & desktops are just tools to get the job done. You need to decide which one is best for you.

I agree. My CS class c. 1992 in South Africa was the same.
They've been teaching this for YEARS.
