Operating system

Alchemist runs "Ubuntu": 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).
Alchemist runs Acrh Linux, and because the arch package maintainers in their infinite wisdom decided not to make gnome3 a separate package, it is using a hacky version of gnome2 from the aur called mate.
Alchemist now runs an old enough version of Ubuntu that it has gnome2
Alchemist, like the other room machines runs Debian Wheezy 64-bit with Fallback gnome3.
