Just decided I should post this for whatever it is worth. I decided that I am going to use this R51 Thinkpad running 100% Linux Mint Celena as my outside shed/workshop Garden computer. t is not quite Business as such like Clem has stated in other threads; but I am using this for all of my work notes, info, and everything else used for my outside work stuff. In addttion I have a 2.1 speaker system to listen to news and internet radio stations and can access email and internet for anything while I am working doing a variety of things. garden, woodshop stuff, or hanging with my Dog and having a glass of Beaujolais or a nice Guinness or a Jack Daniels Single Barrel whiskey.
I have access to repair dates, stuff to do, maintenance records, etc.
I am happier than a pig in ....
Thanks Clem! I love Celena.
