New Machine at Work

Boss got me a new workstation last week: Dell P4-3GHz with 1GB of RAM, running on WinXP. I was really expecting WinXP to be a complete nightmare to work with, but thankfully, starting up on it was almost as easy as with Mac OS X 10.2+, and I had our work development environment (Apache 2, PHP 5, CVS, a code editor, and every web browser on the planet) installed and running in less than a day, along with an internal wiki to document the process. Pity we can’t play games in the office; I’ll bet Vice City would run like a dream on this baby.
