I had a little home server running Ubuntu (Hardy Heron as well) as webserver, cs1.6 server and media/torrent server (and because I needed it for some study related exercises), but I never hooked it up again after moving. I should hook it up someday again, for fun :)

I still use my desktop workstation with Windows 7 for graphics and photography work. Then I move from that environment to development in Linux. I like to separate the two as it makes more sense to get in the right “mode”.

How are you going to track orders, gather reports, print receipts and other depressing things?
When setting up my books and when my taxes are due, and on rare occasion when I need to make account changes… is the only time I call my accountant.
