I love photography, I wish I had ventured into the hobby long ago. In retirement, it was on my list to begin learning. And, I am still learning. I am also a semi-professional geek (I don’t get paid for IT anymore 🙂 ). My home computer setup has always had two monitors. Makes programming and photo processing much easier. Recently, I added a Ubuntu 16.04 machine to my network. The best of both worlds here. One keyboard, one mouse running a window 10 pro desktop on one monitor with a xrdp remote Ubuntu desktop running on the second monitor. I collected a bunch of sata drives I had laying around in JBOD for a 1 TB network store managed by Samba. BTW, the Unity 16.04 gnome desktop and xrdp do not play together well. I run the Mate as an alternate desktop for x-sessions.
Next up, secure VPN port forwarding and standing up my Apache2 web site. Old geeks never die, they ping the internet forever.
