Outside the office, you'll find me running, trying out new recipes, dominating in Sid Meier's Civilization, or catching up on my favorite movies, TV shows, and podcasts.


Sweet! System 76 has some really great devices and Pop! is a good distribution! That's what I am currently running on my 7(8?) year old laptop right now and it's my main system.

Good luck everybody! Whoever wins will be getting a sweet rig.

Don't enter so I can take this beauty home....

Pick me, pick me! ;-)
I've officially ditched Windows (7 Pro) coming up close to a year soon. And you know what? It was easier than I thought -- didn't ever feel the need to run Windows. Aaah, serenity now!

Now, if I can get my hands on a System76 lappie, I will promote it massively in the developing world as I am an expat IT consultant here in East Africa via Canada. ;-)


I want this beast

I have been thinking about System76 since I loaded Fedora on my ThinkPad 7 hears ago.

Whose the winner?

We're still waiting to hear back. We'll post their name as soon as we're able to verify their eligibility.
