Stay with Fedora, or wait for Vista?

OK, so the post title is a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Last weekend I downloaded the DVD ISO of Fedora Core 5. When I have time, I really need to update my home workstation – I’m hoping that the upgrade will be fairly smooth. Anyone else ever tried upgrading to FC5 from FC4 running on SATA with Linux Software RAID? I’m worried about the RAID thing – it bit me when I installed FC4, I never wrote down what I did to get it to work, and kernel upgrades in the last few months have panicked on boot, so I’m currently on a backlevel kernel.

So, Windows Vista then. Do I want it? Not on the basis of Paul Thurrott’s latest analysis

Too much information

A long weekend, followed by 2 intense days on customer site, has left me looking at information overload.

My RSS reader is currently showing 2500 unread entries – which clearly I’m never going to get around to reading, but skimming back through I’m finding gems… so I don’t want to just click mark all as read.

There are simply thousands of unread items in my newsreader. I think I’m going to have to take a harsher approach to these and just hit that mark all read button.

I’ve got about 30 tabs open in Firefox with interesting content which I’m meaning to blog about. Good luck to me…
