Tremont meets Tux


For a number of good reasons, Tremont School‘s use the standard Windows Active Directory + Exchange + Windows Workstations infrastructure. Even though I’m one of those crazy Linux zealots I understand that 1 guy managing 500 machines doesn’t exactly have time to learn and implement an upstart operating system.

However, now that its 2 guys managing 500 machines, its my goal to start using Linux where appropriate (aka everywhere 😉 ).

I’ve now done what I’ve always dreamed of doing: use Linux as my primary operating system at work.

Here’s the my setup:

I have also installed WINE + IE6 thinking that I might try to install MS Office in the future just so I use the same productivity suite as everyone else, but so far I haven’t needed to worry about it.
