With my 3 computer set up I have a Windows Machine with Linux boxes installed in virtual box, I have a Mac Mini, and I have a Chromebox. I needed peripherals that I could use on all three. So I found a Logitech Keyboard and Mouse, and a Creative webcam and speakers that will let me switch between all 3 computers plus the Linux boxes. Of course my monitor can go between all three as well. I also have a wifi printer that I can use with all of my devices.
Eventually I want to do some work on wikipedia articles and also archive citizen for the National Archives. But I have other things to do first.
I was able to do all of my Christmas cookies again last Christmas. Last year I also made blondies and chex mix for the first time. That was fun.
