What I think I'm going to do is take my Ubuntu box off the "grid" by unplugging it's internet connection, but keep it, do all my critical work on it, and surf the web from insecure XP machines that are abundantly available outside my office.
When my Ubuntu laptop gets fixed, I'll probably transfer my data to it, convert the desktop back to XP and do the same. That way my work gets down without the stress of viruses and the like. security fears due to recent problems have caused the place to knock everyone back to sneaker net. If I have to use sneaker net, might as well run Ubuntu for the mission critical stuff.
