I also glance at Phoronix from work from a Windows PC. However, I do have a Fedora VM for "cross platform compatibility testing."
Same here. I read mostly phoronix when idling at work, where I'm forced to use windows / IE.

EVEN when we are using Firefox on opensolaris - because too many webservers are pissy and want to forcefeed you $^@& Flash banner ads rather than show you what you came to see.
Also visiting from work via WinXP. But the more OSīs the better I say
I'm not sure when you last tried. For me, ath9k support went from non existent about 18 months ago, to working a year ago, to stellar a couple of months back. I have arch linux on 2 netbooks and another dual core core2 quad notebook. The netbooks are constantly used and constantly suspend/resumed. Since early this summer I haven't had a failure to resume.

Mozilla on one of my Windows PCs claims to be a Mac. I've no idea how or why it got configured that way, but it's a real pain when I go to one of these 'smart' sites where they use the user-agent field to determine what kind of software to download; I don't want Mac software, can't run it and often they don't even give you any way to pick what kind you actually want.

User Agent Switcher 0.7.2
But it absolutely fools http://get.adobe.com/reader/ into handing me what I want for download.
