And wondering if I shouldn't have a hack at a flav of Unix first or Linux...maybe the former gets me to play around with my Mac under the hood in the future as well.

That's actually not a bad idea at all. Set up iTerm2 + Homebrew, play with some open source software (like mpv). It makes working on OS X very pleasurable. I highly enjoyed that workflow whenever I was stuck in front of a Mac every blue moon, and really, there's a big realm of *nix-y stuff opened up to you as a result.

Great! And always, thanks for looking in on me. Will have a look over the weekend while being domestic. Though, most of my weekend chores were completed by Friday night. Only laundry awaits which affords time to read up.

Oh what do you guys use for movies and videos, I use mpd for music and have been using mpv for movies but I don't know if there's anything else to use for movies that has better upscaling and stuff like mcp-hc or maybe less resource intensive cause I have a netbook and it'd be cool to be able to run bluray rips on it as it struggles with mpv, probably just a hardware issue though.

I use a multithreaded version of mplayer for movies, and vlc for everything else. It all runs fine on my 2006-ish laptop.
