On the vicissitudes of using a PC

Today I've reinstalled Windows on my PC.

It's one of those things you have to do now and then, since it seems to periodically and inexorably degrade to a point where anything you do triggers some error.

The good thing is, at least this forces me to do backups, software updates and not-useful-anymore software removal. All in all, even if I didn't have to I probably would still do these periodic reinstalls.

This time, though, I reserved some space for installing Ubuntu - it's been a while since I last had linux installed here, and I'm willing to use it at home again. The reason? I don't know, but probably it's just because I want it...
