A few weeks ago my laptop died so I needed to buy a new one. As I am heading off to Atlanta for the Supporting Cultural Heritage Open Source Software Symposium, I thought hmm, I could get a System76 laptop and pick it up when I’m there.
Equinox Software support both Evergreen and Koha and are based in Atlanta, even though I have never met most of them, they agreed to have the laptop delivered there. So when I get to Atlanta, I will go pick it up, exchange some beers, then go back to my hotel and check out my presentation out of git ready for the next day.
So thanks to a company that specialises in Linux laptops, and another that specialises in FOSS library software, I will have a brand new laptop running Linux in 3 days time.
Update: Here it is, so far I love it.
