When taking on a colossal effort such as this Workflow Experiment, it pays off immensely to do some preparation in order to save some time for you in the future.
Because I will end up doing 4 different Windows installations, there are a few things that I can do in order to save myself some time.
I probably talk way too much about how much I dislike Windows, and not offer enough solid critical feedback for anyone to take me seriously. I was messing around with my XP install, trying to find a way to clearly divide the two main workflows that I have, and automate switching between, making it as easy–and fast–as possible to get things done.

Here are a few ideas I’ve had, each taking about 5 minutes of work to produce. Now, they’re very rough, but they outline where my head is at nonetheless. Nothing outstanding, really, just some brainstorming.
They’re nowhere near being a final thing, I just wanted to get them out there and see if the idea of a logo is without merit.
The advantage of the WordPress theme that I’m using now is that it’s very simple. I’m undecided on whether or not I want to clutter it up with some sort of logo, but we’ll see. Tell me what you think.
