I imagine Isky is getting heavily conflicting suggestions from all of
Noisebridge on this. Some people seem to assertively want him to move the
desktop or take it home, others probably tell him it's nice to have the
desktop there, and that he's not in the way, and it's great that it's
available for use. I don't think it's unusual in that situation to prefer
the advice of the people who you already agree with.
Isky is going to continue to do whatever he wants. Sometimes that fits
