I needed to upgrade my existing desktop computer, I just needed a little more power than my faithful old Dell OPTIPLEX 745 was providing. Although it is still able to keep up with all the usual software development tasks, it just doesn’t really handle all the virtualisation tasks that well. I have recently been doing a lot of work involving Virtual Machines and also I have been hard at work developing a number of youtube tutorial videos I will shortly be publishing.

I have recently been engaged in a number of projects utilising nodejs and my primary development Operating System has been ubuntu Linux. I also have a number of laptops I use for software development purposes, which I frequently teardown and rebuild during the course of projects. I have a number of reasons for doing this, which relate to the fact that I treat my software development laptops or virtual machines like cattle rather than pets , although this phrase is usually associated with Cloud computing, I find it relates to a software developers laptop/workstation too, especially if you’re engaged in multiple projects.
