Racing to the Bottom

I am here right now courtesy a 13 year old laptop running Ubuntu. The laptop is is an IBM ThinkPad 760XD, one of their premier models when it was released. It is typical of IBM's thinking, for lack of a better term. Everything is easy to access; it's like a Volkswagon. Apple had aesthetics, but IBM had ease of maintenance down to an art.
At any rate, 166 MHz Pentium MMX, 64mb RAM, and here I am.
More later...
