    Aaaargh, I hate Windows file sharing. :rant: It really says something when both OS X and Linux are better than Windows at handling Windows file sharing. :banghead:

    It improved massively between XP and vista. And server sharing was fine even with 03 I thought.
    But home networks are more of a challenge than they should be.
    Last tried I tried linux sharing was years ago. Samba failed to install at first, then failed to load :sigh:
    But that was back when ntfs compatibility was experimental. I assume (hope) it's improved since then.

    It's a little hit and miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    Windows, unfortunately, is better at running windows VMs over the View client than Linux on identical, so that's what I use most of the time because we are required to use Eclipse for the early Java coursework.

    We can use the lab machines for it, but we have access to a VM so we can do lab work in our rooms, meaning I end up using that most of the time.

    Next term, though, I'm using Vim.

    To be honest I was quite happy with my password systems before and I know I'm not on that database of emails, but how easily it was leaked has shocked me so I'm changing all my passwords to a new more secure system :cool:
