I’d consider doing all my work in Linux if I could get my Linux desktop to look like this. But I don’t know how to get there. I think the problem is that Cygwin is a crutch. If Cygwin didn’t make Windows so much less unpleasant, I would probably be inspired to get off my butt and actually start fiddling around more with Linux. As it is, I have two laptops on my desk at work, both identical Dells, and the one that’s always in my docking station is the one running Windows 2000 rather than the one running Red Hat 7.3. I do perhaps 5 or 10 percent of my work on the Linux box, but I could probably do 80% of it there if I didn’t find the Linux desktop environment so unappealing. I could probably make it a lot less unappealing if I were forced to use it, but I’m not. I’d be totally fine with the current arrangement were it not for my conscience. I’m a tortured soul.
