This is my main PC, for now. It’s a dual boot system with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 and Windows 10 Pro. Mostly using it as a gaming PC until I buy some new PC parts and make a new computer.
The meat of this PC is old. So it’s past due for a replacement. However, I’m planning on using it as a server to host VMs. Hence, having SUSE installed. And it’s still more than powerful enough for that. Especially since I’m the only person using it.

This was the cheapest MacBook Pro that I could get at the time. I use it for programming and making iOS Apps. I also have a couple of USB flash drives loaded with Linux distros that I use with this laptop.

Nothing super fancy here. I used to have D-Link gear, a wifi router and switch. However, I read that they have a horrible practice of not updating their firmware after security vulnerabilities are disclosed. So I went with Netgear.

Using the one loaded with Ubuntu as a test WordPress server. This is where I test out my website’s look and layout first before updating this website. That way I’m not making an endless amount of changes on the website as I find things that need to be fixed or changed. It’s always good practice to have separate test and production web servers.
I recently got the 3 B+. I will be using it to host a Wiki pertaining to my setup, i.e., static network IPs, which ports used for what software, and username/passwords. Which means it will be a password protected site. Because if someone hacks into my network, I want to limit what they can get access to.
