The family that computes together, stays together

This is my new work area. This is where the magic happens. :-) At 10.5 feet long, it's nearly 28 square feet of total desk surface.


It is a thing of beauty.


I put this setup together with the idea that the whole family could share it. I spend so much time at home now, it's a great way for me to get work done and help the girl with her homework at the same time. The kids use the machine at the far end, a Shuttle SFF with AMD guts running Ubuntu Linux 5.10 (Breezy). The lovely and talented wife uses this spot as home base for her Windows laptop. And of course I've got my little slice of office heaven here at this end dual booting Ubuntu Linux 6.10 (Edgy, pictured) and (infrequently) Windows XP.
