Discussion of hardware related issues
Given this great turn of events( being able to run pretty much any distro on my Dell E6420 with E series dock after recent updates), I could pull back from using so many desktops and knock it down to two systems, one for gaming and a backup for my wife and thats it. I could use laptops with dock as both a everyday desktop and portable system. It would save space and not require me keeping so many spare parts and addons. Ill have to mull it over a bit.
