New blog about personal computing

February 28th, 2021

The personal computer is something that is very dear to me. If there are two types of computer users in the world:

  1. those who see their computer as a means to an end, and
  2. those who identify themselves with their computer,

then I am part of the latter group. I care deeply about the way my computer works, especially with regards to the operating system and user interface. And once I’ve found an operating system that I like, I spend a lot of time learning it, customizing it and optimizing my workflow.

That’s why I created this blog. I’ve chosen to call it John’s Desktop. The theme is personal computing, but I thought desktop sounded better than PC. It’s been a while since I’ve done any blogging per se. I’ve written a few web articles throughout the years; I’m not sure that counts as blogging. But now I’m actually returning to it, with blog engine and all.

The posts are going to be focused on the operating systems that I use:

As you can see, it’s very much a mix of retro and modern. If you’re interested in the same kind of things – welcome! Feel free to stick around or subscribe to the feed.
