💙 I really want to try out using NetBSD full time as a workstation OS, honestly

💙 I'm pretty damn tempted to pick up a ThinkPad X131e, throw NetBSD on it, and use that as my main portable machine - especially now that I have the remote development setup that I have

💙 Thinking about getting another dirt-cheap laptop (the X131e is attractive) for a few reasons, one of which is “then I can sell the machines that would actually get me money”

Another is “a cheap laptop means I’m not afraid to modify the fuck out of it” - I’m likely gonna get the Storybook System to do some custom art on the top lid, and also maybe fit some extra shit internally
