None.

It's an athlon2600+ with a generic nf2 mobo. I've been swapping ram out of my wife's pc when she's not using it, just to play around with it. Next weekend I'll grab a gig at the local CC ($69.00) and then I can get my grey_1's learning network up and running.

Time to do some hardcore learning instead of just playing around.

If it weren't for gaming some debian based OS would be all over my main rig here.

I wish my second rig had that kind of power. Soon maybe, lots of other little fishes to fry first.

Looks nice DD!

Is Compiz in the repository yet or did you have to compile it? I'm actually wiping my main hdd tonight in my main rig, vista is getting retired to gaming only, so I want to get my old sweet linux setup back.

So now DD is starting to figure out that Linux isn't an unusable hobby OS after all...
