I've been using Ubuntu Linux for several years as the operating system on my laptops (which I also use for testing my web programming work). But until recently, I was still using a desktop computer running Windows XP as my primary home office computer. With Windows XP nearing (or at) its end of life, I've been planning for quite a while to migrate away from Windows rather than purchasing an upgrade.

I'm in the process of migrating off Windows to a purely Linux environment in my office. I've been using a Windows computer as my primary day-to-day machine, and my two Linux laptops as (a) test web servers and (b) portable computers (something to take with me to meetings, conferences, etc. that I could use to access the Internet, read/answer email, and work/program on).
