Looking Forward

Two reasons I am looking forward to Online Desktop:

  1. I wont have to waste time setting up my IM/E-Mail client everytime I re-install my operating system, or move to a new computer
  2. I wont have to worry about which computer I saved my documents on when I take my just my laptop away from home

  1. What the heck? Set things up??

    Well, if you have /home on a separate partition, you don’t ever need to re-apply settings to anything. You just re-install the / OS and plug in your /home. All your settings are kept in .x files in your home folder.

    On Ubuntu, the home partition can be set to automount somewhere during the install process. I haven’t re-done any of my bookmarks, nautilus sizes, e-mail settings, or IM settings… in memory.

  2. Of course, you will have to worry about who is reading your mail, but I guess that is a minor inconvenience ;)
