Thank you all for your suggestions on how to live with Windows, my Microsoft-controlled existence feels a lot easier now. I managed to move my Linux virtual machine over from VMWare Fusion on my Macbook Pro and after whispering soothing words into its ear it now lives happily under Windows. For when I don't need the whole Linux desktop experience I've now got a Ubuntu terminal in my start menu, which is now located at the top of the screen. Rainmeter is really nice, I used to run GeekTools back in the day but for some silly reason stopped. I haven't dared to run those de-bloater scripts yet, but hopefully will get around to it this weekend. Still trying to find a native RSS reader that doesn't suck, but I'm leaning more and more towards going with a web solution. My only problem right now is ironically that I can't get my printer to work which is connected to the network through an Airport Express. Trying to get it to work with Bonjour only makes the installer crash. Thanks, Apple!
