This fine weekend I made a number of very important decisions that will more than likely make my life much less complicated and therefore much more enjoyable, namely the following:
- Dump that annoying Windows XP completely and replace it with the much more advanced FreeBSD operating system.
- Forget about XFCE for now and concentrate on adapting to the slightly more fattening Gnome desktop instead.
- Remove Firefox which is unstable and slow anyway, and just use the default Epiphany web browser which is native to the Gnome desktop.
- Stay with the standard integrated Evolution mail program rather than the more boring Thunderbird mail client.
My feeling is that while those products like Firefox and Thunderbird started out innocently enough, because of their wonderful success they have just become too bloated and unwieldly for me. Too bad, but see you later.
I prefer speed and simplicity to advanced functionality ninety percent of which I will never ever use anyway.
