It has been a long time since my last post, so I would like to make some conclusion for the past month.
Actually, the development group does not fit me. I do not know any programming after all. To be honest, it is boring to work as demand analysis and technical support. There was a change for me to move to other department, so I made my decision with no hesitation.
However, we are still in the same office room. Now I am still in the transitional period, and sometimes I will catch one and lose the other.
My previous laptop has served me four years, and it is time to retire. I think this new laptop will serve me another four years.
However, I am not interested in Windows, so it is still running Gentoo only. It is a pity that it has only two SATA interfaces. Otherwise I can take the HDDs from my previous laptop, without reinstalling Gentoo.
The previous laptop is running FreeBSD only, and I will maintain it periodically.
