Everyone that has read just a few entries here knows I play a lot of games (points over to his ‘gamercard’). Most of the time you can find me logged into EVE Online or Champions Online. Those MMO’s have a tendency of sucking away most of my free time but I do spend quite a bit of time on my Xbox 360. Recently I have played Batman: Arkham Asylum and Halo 3: ODST. Both were interesting and well designed but have not held my interest very well. Halo was great in Co-Op mode and Batman, even though it is very faithful to the Batman mythos and is one of the best DC superhero games ever (that isn’t saying much, though), just did not hold my interest. Kicking the heads of bad guys in over and over just to get to the next boss battle has become blase. The Bat-gadgets are neat but they just seem to be more of ‘this’ and extra hit points, nothing to really strive for.
When Katie McAwesome and I moved from the Orlando area, we originally lived in a hotel as we were looking for new digs (actually KMcA looked, and worked). In that whole time she used a Dell Mini 9 to do all her work. Surprisingly, it ran everything she did; web, word processing, e-mail, the whole works. I myself own an ASUS EEEpc 900A, that I use for casual web surfing and blogging. That machine is 100% on the cloud, as another experiment. I recently purchased KMcA a Dell Mini 10v so that she had a larger keyboard and screen to use. So now I have both the Dell Mini 9 and ASUS EEEpc 900A. Both of these machines are intel processors, Atom in the Mini, Celeron in the 900A.
Now the experiment. For the next week I will use both of these machines, the Mini 9 running OS X Leopard and the 900A running Windows 7. Looking at both, I’ll see what works, what doesn’t and which I prefer in the end. Because all you OS X Kool-Aid drinkers scare me.
