The Experiment Begins

I've decided to try a little experiment, and see how things will go, computing-wise, if I minimize my dependence on Windows.  Now, I don't want to run out and buy a Mac (not yet, anyway), so I'm taking a middle ground.

I first repartitioned my hard drive (thanks gparted), and set aside a 15GB partition.  On this partition, I installed OpenSUSE 11.

My plan is to run OpenSUSE 11 as the host OS, and then use VMware to run VM's for my work and such.

I'm curious as to how it will work out.  I know the one hurdle I would like to come is the stupid DRM that Apple iTunes uses.  Anybody have some suggestions, so I can do this while it's still legal to format-shift in Canada (or perhaps I should spell it Kanada if bill C-61 passes).
