Daedalus. That’s the name that I picked up playing the legendary computer game “Deus Ex“. After a few months of playing that game, I was tinkering with linux. I was pretty new to the world of the infamous penguin. However, when I was installing Arch Linux and was asked the hostname, I gave the name Daedalus. Since then, the name has sticked and I have always used that name for my computer’s hostname. It was also a time when I started blogging and there is a post hanging around from that era. However, since then I’ve made my home here in the land of penguins and customized it enough to make it an alien sight for at least about 90% of the people who use computers. I’ve been thinking about writing about the setup that I use.
I have decided that I will be writing a series of posts that will describe my computer setup. I will start with the operating system and then one by one introduce each software that I use. Along with the customizations that I have made to it. Once I have created a blog entry about a single piece of software, I will add a link to that post in this page. So, it is easily accessible to anyone who wants to learn more. Also, I will be able to keep a log of the system as it evolves.
Generally these posts will go into the category Computers & Technology unless it’s about emacs in which case it will go into Emacs category. However, you can filter all the posts about my setup using daedalus tag.
