My family and friends have been harassing me for owning/running 3 desktops (with several harddrives to make like I have even more pc's) and one laptop. I just realized when looking at the Gallery of 'Workstation', most posters own at least 3 PC's. All of a sudden, I feel as if I'm among friends. How many pc's do you own and under what OS's? Other threads have already asked what you use your pc's for so I don't want to duplicate the discussion. I'm just curious what the distribution of pc ownership is. If you would like to give some description of their usage, that would be good too.

I'm running ...
1 - AMD64 3200, 1.0 Gig Ram, Fedora Core 5
1 - ECS, Duron 1.7 GHz, 512 M Ram, CentOS 4 (file and web server)
1 - MSI, P4 1.8 GHz, 1 Gig Ram, CentOS 4 (file and print server)
1 - ThinkPad A31, XP Laptop, P4 1.8 GHz, 384 M Ram
1 - Acer Aspire 5002 Laptop, AMD Turion 64, 1 Gig Ram, 100 Gig HD, Ubuntu 8.04 as host and Fedora 9 in Virtualbox, Original WinXP removed.
1 - eeePC
1 - MAC Book Pro
1 - Acer Aspire One Netbook
1 - Asus eeePC 1000 - eeebuntu
1 - HP 1000 Netbook

Stats update:
So far, looking at those who voted, the 1 pc owner is the minority. We need more voters.

Message Update February 1, 2006
It's almost been a year since this thread started. Many forum viewers have visited and contributed to this thread. A recent post really made this thread show it's true value. The post listed an inventory of 20 computers. This is a special group of enthusiasts. Our love is computers and our passion is collecting as many flavours of it as we can. If you're visiting this post for the first time or the 10th time, update this thread with updates you have made to your addiction. How many pc's do you own and running what OS's. :D

Message Update June 21, 2006
Just got a new laptop. Acer Aspire 5002. Updated list above

Message Update May 27, 2008
Acer Aspire 5002. Runs Ubuntu 8.04 as host and Fedora 9 in Virtualbox

Message Update Mar 11, 2009
Got a few more to add to my collection.

I've got my main machine running FC2 and Win XP, my test box (on loan to my sister) with FC3 and XP and my wife's machine with just XP (but I still love her). All boxes are boring beige towers with nothing special as far as guts - but have very nice flat screens!

I've been considering to buy nice thin flat screens. My worry is what am I going to do with all that space recovered from the 17inch monitors on my desk?

I have one pc that I use for school with windows xp. Its a 2.0 ghz pentium 4 with a gig of ram and a nice video card.
I have another pc that I use for a server. At the moment debian is installed on it (fedora was just taking up too much hd space) but I don't have it fully configured. 1.1 ghz duron, 512 megs of ram, 40 gb hdd, onboard everything. fairly quiet
I have yet another pc partially dismantled in the desk cabinet. its a dual pentium 3 550 mhz, 512 megs of ram, 20 gb hard drive, i am thinking of removing one of the processors for heat purposes and using it as a router.
My last pc is not really mine, its a company issued laptop, but i'm the head of the IT department, so I use it anyway. It has fedora core 3 on it, no plans to change that. 2.66 ghz pentium 4, 40 gb hard drive. the rest is detailed in my signature.

Enjoy it! (I just got a 19" TFT to replace my tube 17" and my "desk" is a two-foot wide table. I needed the space!

Current count:
Two self-built desktop boxes (unfortunately in full-tower cases - them suckers is noisy), both on FC3
One IBM T-41, also running FC3
The home-control system and backup firewall on FC1 (if it ain't broke and you don't use it much, don't fix it).

I just downloaded CentOS 4. Going to install it tonight. How do you like it?

I've got 7 or 8 machines, but only have 2 up and running at the moment. Both are running FC2. I'll get around to the others eventually. Have to get those win installs off of them. I kinda feel contaminated having them around with windows still on them. (goes over and closes the closet door.)

I have 6 machines

1) My PC (Dual PIII-S 1266MHz Tualatins @ 1333MHz)
2) Server (Dual PIII-S 1400MHz Tualatins)
3) Router (Single PIII 1000MHz Coppermine)
4) Juke Box (Single PIII-S 1400MHz Tualatin)
5) Secondary PC (Single PIII-S 1266 MHz Tualatin)
6) Dedicated SETI/BOINC cruncher (Single PIII 866MHz Coppermine)


I'm a SETI/BOINC junkie - all of the above machines crunch Work Units.
Gives me approx. 1200 cobblestones per day.

hmmm, that's a little sad actually. Nothing greater than a PIII :(

I'm assuming all your PIII machines are running linux. It just proves that Linux rocks.

Well, I personally have 1, my FC3/XP Pro box, but in the house are like 4 more. 2 macs, and 2 Windows 98 machines. Well, technically we have another if you count the 20 mhz laptop (cerca 1990) running windows 3.0. I almost dont count that, only thing i ever use it for is if I have to do some work in teh car when someone else is driving. It lags trying to play solitare for petes sake. Oh well, its still fun to play with.

Out of curiosity, what distros are you running?

A mixture of Red Hat 9 and Fedora Core 3

I never tried FC1.
I tried FC2 two times on my workstation, and both times it didn't last more than an afternoon before I put RH9 back on.
For some reason in FC2 I couldn't get USB working, yet it works fine on RH9 and now on FC3.

Slowly moving things over to FC3 :)
So far the server and my machine are the only ones with FC3

Yep, I've seen your site. Nice! :)

Initially I downloaded your compiled clients, but have since compiled my own.
I've also re-configured my kernel and managed to squeeze a few more numbers out of the benchmarks.

Are you using FedoraLegacy to update your Redhat 9?

I've taken a couple of updated packages from the legacy project.
But since I'll upgrade the rest of the machines in the near future I'm not too worried about keeping the the RH9 machines up2date.

3 PCs and 1 laptop on a wireless home network using 2Wire 1700 home portal with Bellsouth DSL Ultra.

All PCs have XP w/SP1 (1 P4-1.8, 2 P4-2.6 and the laptop is a 1.5 Centrino)
1 PC dual boots FC2 and XP w/SP1 (this is the PC that is hardwired to the DSL modem)
New Toshiba Laptop with XP and SP2 - I plan to load FC3 and Ubuntu and tri-boot. I might wait until FC4 comes out or just load Ubuntu and dual boot until FC4 comes out.

***BTW, I love this Toshiba laptop. I got it at BBuy for 999.00 and I feel like I stole it from them. :D

2 Machines

pIII 450mhz 100FSB 256 Ram with removable 2x8G and a backup 40G. Has FC2 on one drive and Win2K Server on the other. Seems to run both OS's just fine, but I dont use this one for much, just surfing, emails and some text editing. FC2 is difficult to configure on this machine, not sure if its hardware related or just an operator error.

pIV 2.4ghz 512 Ram with 80G running WinXP Pro. Soon to try FC3 dual boot to see if I have more luck.

Both have nice flat screen 17"ers, not large by todays standards, but used to be the bees knees :+)


4. Clone 233Mhz various spare parts, Gonna be youngest daughters PC. Gonna try loading Linspire on it. I think its gonna be too weak though.
Bigfatso
Im not sure about minimum reqs for FC2 but my PIII 450 256 Ram (<--- seems to be the key for mine) seems to work pretty good, using a small window manager may help here. May even try it myself now that I mention it :+)

1 Gateway Profile running FC3 (weird hardware).
1 Compaq DeskPro with some version of Linspire (not my idea, and even weirder hardware)
1 decade+ Gateway tower running Red Hat.

Plus my family has a Gateway workstation and a notebook running Windows.

I have an HP 520c with an AMD-1600 running Windows-XP and I have a P3-450mhz running Fedora Core 3. I have learned more about Software and hardware in the 4 months I have been using Linux than the previous 3 years. I am by no means an expert but I have really taken a step back and looked at what is going on concerning stability and security with my computers. I think that as soon as OpenOffice.org 2.0 comes out I will be a large step closer to kissing windows goodbye for good. :) :D :)

Interesting comment because, in my opinion, that's what inspires the Linux and open source movement. Bringing computing to the general public and providing freedom to grow as one wishes. :D

"Then" is a period in time. As in "not now."

I have 1 machine, running a dual boot with XP and Fedora Core 4. I a new convert, and haven't fully explorewd linux yet. I am hoping that I will have a Linux only box once I get a Mac, due once the Intel boxes come out, because I have software requirements which are mac only. XP is ****e, can't wait to ditch it on my current P3 box and have it linux only. Linux is too cool for words, it just has a philosophy to it that makes Microsoft look like a bully in a schoolyard. It is the zen of operating systems.

Netfinity 5100/RAID dual processors running Centos 3

well, I'm a nut anyway, but here goes:

My home office setup
1. Home built Athlon 64 3800 with FC4 (this one)
2. Dell Dimension 2400 celeron with XP pro (wifes PC)
3. Home built Athlon 64 3800 with XP pro (my gameing rig, this one is decked out. 2 6800 GT's in SLI, 2 WD 200 GB sata drives in raid 0, Sound blaster audigy platnum with front hub, modded cooler master praetorian case, etc...)
4 Home built Athlon 64 2800 socket 754 multibooted with 5 linux distros (my linux toybox, kinda just a test bed)

Top 4 hooked up to 4 port KVM switch with logitech wireless keyboard/optical mouse and sharing a 21" CRT. I also use a printer switch so they can share one cheap HP deskjet 3320. I have a home built speaker switch for the 5.1 creative speakers.

5. old NEC laptop with DSL (Damn small linux) just a toy as I rarely travel with it.
6. A 1995 Packard Bell Platnium with a Pentium 1, 64 MB ram, 3.2 GB drive, 98-SE, (used for my 4 year old for educational games and to teach him about computers. I am impressed by what he can do at his age!)
7. "The Wall Crawler" A home built artsy wall hanging consisting of the guts from an old garage sale find. Mounted everything on a 2' x 2' board with a 15" LCD in the top right corner. 3.2 GB drive just holds DSL and runs a slide show of all my photos. A redneck digital picture frame.

I also have a working TRS-80 model 3 and a Commadore Vic 20 in my office, along with an Atari 2600, an Intellivision, A NES, A super NES and a Sega. These all work but are just on display along with several typewriters, a few antique radios and an old record player.

Dont know if these count, by they are in the household:
8. Home built Athlon 64 3800 dual booted XP home/FC4 for 16 year old. We built it together.
9. scrounge built Athlon 64 3200 with cheap Gigabyte board, onboard graphics/sound, 30 GB drive FC4 for 13 year old, also a father/son project.

I also have a closet full of garage sale PC's, and a few of my old ones. a 386, a couple 486's. Some work, some dont. Also boxes of parts. Old printers, scanners etc...Drives my wife nuts!

Second are the backup disks and external hard drive. These are simply irreplaceable. There is no possible way to take all my computers, I would just have to live with the loss. God bless you for what you went through, I hope things get back to normal for you soon.

Family comp: Running FC4 and a currently dead WinXP Pro (XP just randomly stopped booting)
- Abit IC7-G, P4 3E GHz, 1 GB DDR400, 160gb HD, ATI FireGL X1

Test system: I sorta "borrowed" this one from my parents to test web server stuff. Running FC4
- Dell 600r: P3 600MHz, 128MB RAM, 20gb HD

Tertiary:
Intel Pentium Pro 200 running Windows 95 osr2 (wife's computer)
Laptop:
Compaq Presario 2140us dual booting Windows XP home and FC4. Unfortunately, I still need to boot XP because of printing. The Brother Linux print driver for my MFC 420cn is definitely not up to the quality of their XP driver .

1- old gateway laptop running slackware as a webserver (originally had windows 98)
2- mac mini running Mac OS X Tiger as an entertainment center and family desktop
3- ibook running Mac OS X Tiger for the wife (I cannot touch it do to an accident with her first ibook, read item 6)
4- dell inspiron personal laptop running FC4
5- dell latitude D600 dual boot XP and FC4 for work
6- ibook running FC4 (used to belong to the wife until a book shelf fell on it while I was using it)*

* an iGenius thought that it would be too expensive and difficult to fix. This gave me a great opportunity to open it up, fix it and install FC4... eat that iGenius.

1.8Ghz AMD AthlonXP / WinXP / 40GB / 1GB ram for games that don't play well in Linux
700Mhz PIII running FC4 / 480GB / 256mb ram running as my file and proxy server
400Mhz Apple Titanium laptop / Mac OS X 10.4.3 / Ubuntu dual boot for my wife

Here's what's currently not in use:
Powermac 9600 with G3/400Mhz upgrade card
Powermac 8600 / 233Mhz
Two Performa 6400's
Powerbook G3 Pismo / 400Mhz
iMac G3 / ??? mostly parts at this point

Enough parts to build two or three more....My closet is full of rubbermaid bins that overflow with all sorts of parts I've collected over the years, most working some not. Too many hard drives to count and enough jazz disks (remember those?) to play dominos with them. I've recently trashed about three chassis' bringing my total machine count to twelve.

couple with Centos 4.2 (desktop/servers--nice n stable--but way behind FC in apps availability!)
Also have "a few" Computer/Appliance type things with Linux for specific "usage". router(s)--firewall(s)--monitoring etc.
"Other's computers running around here".............
one win xp for my "loving--but "ain't gonna" use Linux" --Wife.
and a couple more FC4 for homework/printing for my teenage sons--no Inet/network access though..(they click on stuff better left alone/unviewed if not constantly "supervised".
and you wouldn't believe the tricks and things they have tried to get Win games to install and run in FC--- I haven't told them about wine yet---and probably won't--hi-hi)

I originally downloaded the 64bit version of FC4 and it was giving me too much grief and I've reached my download limit for the month so I've been trying a few different distros I had lying around from magazine covers. In 3 days I'll d/l the 32 bit version of FC4 and give suse and/or ubuntu the flick.

2. AMD 2200 with win xp on a 80gig SATA for the MRS to play backgammon and spades on, and keep in touch with her family in the States.

I'm actually trying to scale my network down a good bit. I have a baby on the way and need to make room. I'm looking to get rid of systems 12 - 20 for sure, with the potential of shaking 5 more loose.


Now that's a COLLECTION. This is the reason for starting this thread. So all the closet collectors (like myself) can come out and admit to their addiction :D

Hah, with my first child on the way... the late nights of coding will definitely be gone. Plus, we need space so I will probably only end up with a handful of boxes left... :( Although, I could always get a few rackmounts... :)

Sempron 64 3000/512Mb/300Gb + 40Gb running FC4
Apple iBook G4 12" running OS X (mainly) and Ubuntu 5.10.

I did run ipcop on an old P233 (or P200 can't remember), but now just use the routing capabilities of my modem because...

NOTE: this is just food for thought, I am not trying to preach - even though I sound like a god damn hippie (mind you I use linux so am clearly a long haired smelly)...

Remember that PCs consume quite a bit of power which inevitably results in more greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere.

http://www.choice.com.au/viewArticle.aspx?id=100340&catId=100519&tid=100008&p=9 states that on average each 1kW of power produces 1Kg of CO2 in most states and territories of Australia.

(Note that, apparently, Australia, and in particular NSW - 98% coal generated!, uses more coal per capita to produce electricity than any other country. Coal is baaaad for creating CO2. So, this will probably not be as bad for non-Australian residents)

If I have a PC that draws 250 Watts/hour and leave it on 24/7, it will use 2190kW/year.

(250 * 24 * 365) / 1000 = 2190.

That is over 2 tons of CO2 per year.

To put this into perspective, according to http://www.3sc.net/solarm/gasp.htm, that is more than 4 times as much CO2 as my car produced last year (I drove ~15,000KM, in a 96 model car with ~150000km on the odo, a fuel efficiency of ~10L/100Km and using unleaded petrol)!

I agree with you and yep I turn the PC off at night. I'm worried about global warming as well but there isn't much we can do about it till someone stands up to the oil companies. After all we already have the technology to replace the internal combustion engine.

Anyhow back on topic.

I have a 3.2 GHZ (HyperThreading) Pentium 4 with 512 mb ram, 200gb Hard drive and a Geforce 6600 as my desktop pc, it runs FC5

My server is an AMD 64X2 3800 (dual core), 1.5gb ram and 600gb raid 5 array running Gentoo (FC5 didn't support my SATA raid).

My Laptop is a 2.0 ghz (dual core) Macbook Pro with 1gb ram and a 100gb hard drive, running OS X, its a great machine really pleased with it.

Unfortunately both my flatmates run Windows and both their machine are always infested with malware, I'm the one they ***** to when it breaks and I have to fix it for them all the time :(

3 systems and a 2 halfs (lol)
1- Toshiba M40 running dual boot FC5 and XP for academic purposes
2- P4 3.6GHz running only XP for games and multimedia
3- AMD 3500+ with FC5 for academic purposes and work
The P4 and the AMD each have a 19" LCD display, and i love the extra space on my desks! (the two monitors are the same cus a while ago, i used to run winxp on a dual monitor setup) but i find it better to have two different machines (allthough not at the same desk anymore)

Now the halfs:
4-An old P2 450MHz running FC3, used as a file and printserver for my network. i set up this machine, plugged it to the router, and it's been up and running for the past 4month, never had to check on it (time for a yum update lol)
5-P4 1.5GHz used for "experimental" purposes. (whenever i want to try something freakish, i use it) and since it's setup in the living room, it's the machine friends and family use when they need to check their email.

Interesting comment because, in my opinion, that's what inspires the Linux and open source movement. Bringing computing to the general public and providing freedom to grow as one wishes. :D

Funnily enough that's exactly why I (and I suspect most other people too) have never bothered with linux for more than a few minutes each time before giving up. A computer is a tool I use to get things done. I don't need to know how the internals of a power drill work to use one. I just need to know that when I pull that trigger holes appear. :D

As it happens I *do* know how the internals of computers work but only because it's an area that interests me and it's something I *want* to find out about. Not because I was forced to.

For the record I only have one machine running Windows 2000 Pro at home, and two dual core machines with WinXP Pro 64 at work. (One with a widescreen 24" monitor, and the other with a 20" widescreen. ;) )

I'm the same. Linux today is so different then it was even two years ago when it was difficult to make things work. Now, just install and it works. With OpenOffice 2.0, I'm going to get rid of my Office 2000 running on Crossover Office pretty soon.

:rolleyes:

By the way, the beauty about Linux is that I don't have to chase the OS trends. I'm still running the same PC's on CentOS and Fedora as I had when I started this thread over a year ago and my PC's are 3 to 4 years old. Gotta love it.

My revised list:

Main box (home built)-AMD X2-4800, Asus A8NE, 2GB Corsair DDR400, 2 WD 400GB and 1 WD 80GB SATA hard drives (non RAID at the moment), Nvidia 7800GT, 480W Antec Trupower PSU, Lite-on DVD RW and DVD ROM, Areogate 3 fan controller, 5 80mm blue led fans (3 intake, 2 exhaust), multi-card reader (that actually works!!!), floppy all in a Praetorian case with modded window I added myself. (yeah, a bit much for Linux but it was fun to build a high end box!) Running FC5 and OpenSUSE Slick 10.1.

Test box (store bought)- stock Dell Dimension 2350 with an old Celeron processor, 640 MB RAM, WD 80GB hard drive, onboard graphics and added Lite-on DVD RW running up to 9 multi-booted distros so far, with PCLinuxOS being the only static one.

XP media hub (home built)- AMD 64 2800 Sempron, Gigabyte micro ATX board, 1GB Kingston DDR 400, Nvidia pro cinema tuner/GPU, WD 240GB hard drive, Lite on DVD RW running XP Pro hard wired to my bedroom TV and Stereo system. I use this one for a PVR, streaming music from my Main computer (.ogg files) through DBPoweramp freeware Windows player (handles .ogg) to my stereo, various Windows games and my wife uses this one for productivity.

Laptop (dad's junk I inherited)- just throw this one in, it is an old late 90's NEC running DSL with Fluxbox and the Rox Filer. My only laptop and this is just used for fun mostly running a photo slideshow on my desk.

I have 5 kids. The three oldest boys each built their own systems (with my help) and I built the youngest boys PC. My daughter just turned 2, she doesnt have a computer yet. These 4 computers are all about identicle built around:

AMD 64 2800 Semprons, various low end MOBO's, 1GB DDR 400, 80 GB WD drives, Lite-on DVD RWs with generic CD RWs I had laying around, generic floppys I had laying around, and they each picked out their own case depending on cost and taste. I had to replace 2 of the junk PSU's with decent Antec pieces so far and expect the other 2 to blow in the future. My oldest sprung for a Nvidia 6800 GT and he dual boots XP and FC5. The next down has onboard graphics and he expermints with various distros. He is always installing something new. The third has a cheapo PCI graphics card I had floating around and runs FC4. The last is my 5 year old and I have him running FC4 with KDE in a locked down state (see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=84006&page=10&pp=15 for a screenshot of his desktop).

I run my main box, test box, media hub and laptop through a 4 port LinksKey KVM switch and a 4 port USB printer switch. All my computers are hardwired into my home network through a Linksys router and I am on Hughesnet satellite internet which isnt too bad, I cant get cable or DSL and it's better than dial up.

I am thinking about my next project but my wife informs me I'm done :( ...

6 PCs four with Windows of which three are Windows 2000 and one is XP, two with Linux, one FC5 (my peronsal desktop) another (the router/FW/dhcpd server/print server) with FC2. The four Windows computers are used by other members of the family and am pushing towards Open Source, starting by slowly migrating them to OOo 2.0.2, Mozilla SeaMonkey (due to the mailclient integration) and GIMP and GAIM and other FLOSS programs.

While I'm at home with parents, I can say that we have a total of about 10 computers in the house that are up and running (and countless parts / older macs that are out of use). When I'm away for school, 3 of those computers are with me (two now that I gave my old laptop to my g/f).

Desktop
AMD Athlon XP 2400
2x120GB Maxtor SATA HD's (disabled and awaiting a Low Level Format)
1x80gb WD IDE HD
(I honestly can't remember if I have 1GB or 2GB or ram)
Dualboot FC5 and XP Pro

Acer Ferrari 4005 Notebook
AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology ML-37(1MB L2 cache, 2.0GHz)
100GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive (5400 rpm)
1GB (512MB installed in each of two memory slots) DDR333 SDRAM (upgradeable to 2 GB total)
Dualboot FC5 and WinXP Pro

Dell Latitude CP
Pentium I 233MHz
2GB HD
92mb ram
Win2K Pro (before the g/f has this, it had Mandrake 9.2)

As for the other 7 computers at home, my dad is running XP on 5 of them, and Millenium (sp) on the 6th. The 7th computer is my sisters and she's running XP and will soon switch to a dual boot XP/Ubuntu. The first (and last) time my dad trusted Linux, it was RedHat 6 and it was acting as our firewall. I don't think he'll go back anytime soon.

i'm living the "too many computers, too little space" life too. though i'm into the low budget, high return end. here's my tiny japanese flat (also directly underneath the aproach path to the international airport).

4 total in my posession.
1 850mhz pIII desktop (mini) with a server install of ubuntu (i just love how linux let me put a 300gig drive in this box with nary a blink even though the bios can't see it).
1 toshiba tecra8100 pIII 600mhz laptop i purchased for 1000 yen for parts. i got bored one day, pulled the top off the thing, fixed the cpu fan, and made it work with a scavanged 2.5g hdd i yanked out of an ancient pII box that's been sitting in a friends closet for the last 5 years ... and a 128m stick of ram i found in a parking lot. she runs a server install of ubuntu breezy with icewm. (fast enough under this setup to play dvd's)
1 toshiba tecra8100 pIII 700mhz laptop running win2000 (currently serving up my international telephone)
1 NEC VersaPro va90j pIII 1ghz laptop (japanese only) with fedora core5 which i use for work.

speaking of work, i happened to remember one more machine i neglected to include in my count for the vote ... i have an ancient toshiba satelite at work running windows. i vnc into for no other purpose than to print. Printer hardware manufacture's reluctance to accept the linux community is about the only thing keeping me from being 100% windows free.

1. P4 3hgz + 1gb DDR400 RAM+40gb HDD+ATI9200 video+Delta66 Soundcard..This box is running XP only and is in charge of my studio where it controls MIDI functions, Recording and multitracking. Im not sure how long its going to take to get a second HDD in there so I can install FC5 on the box but that will happen once i've fully sussed linux apps for that task and oh yeah im also running GTA San Andreas on it (its the only machine in the house gutsy enough to run it).

2.AMD XP1600 overclocked to XP1800+, NVidia 64 bit graphics, Sound Blaster Live,512mb DDR266 RAM, 40GB HDD running XP + 20gb HDD FC5. this is my internet machine im testing FC5 on it I just had to do a low level format on the 20gb HDD and reinstall FC5 due to a bad sector problem really messing with my installation. The XP installation is mainly used by other householders. I used to use it and being a Windows expert its also the box I use to do all my Windows admin stuff on (computer tech by trade)
3. (f'ing)DELL box PIII, 192MB SDRAM, 4GB HDD, everthing else on board - this PC was being used to test Ubuntu 5.05 Breezy Badger and is about to be retired to the next clean up campaign as the computer and breezy badger suck.
4. I just picked up ths box for $20 AUD off a mate. P4 1.5ghz, 20GB HDD,384mb SD133 RAM, 32 mb Unknown so far Video card, Sound blaster Live 5.1 soundcard. So far this machine has one cracked copy of XPSP1 which will be removed (remember cracking a copy of XP is just way too much hassle and its really worth buying it if you have to use it) on it that is going to get deleted im going to use this box to test a few different Linux distros the first being Ubuntu 6.06 when it arrives in the mail. This machine has a broken PS2bus on it and I had to go out and buy a USB keyboard for it in addition to the USB mouse that I got with it that's why it was so cheap.

Reading the posts here makes me want to go out and get more hardware. My wife also told me we're done with adopting more PC's. I wonder what she would say if one was sitting at the front door like a child needing a home? hmmm... By the way, looking at the poll, I see myself in the minority category with 5 boxes. God bless those with 5+. You're my hero.

I'm starting to see listings of Semprons. Can anyone comment on their experience with them?

I have been using linux since 1997 and started with RH5.1, then RH6.2, RH9 and FC1. I have tried a few other distros as well, but always end up going back to RH and FC. The Epia-pc is the exception because I want to be able to 100% control when compiling the OS from source. This is what I currently have hooked up on my my home network.

Server: Asus-A8V-MX, Athlon 64 3700+ 2.2GHz, 1024Mb RAM, 40Gb (CentOS 4.3) + 250 Gb (Storage). Used for file storage, timeserver and mvpserver for the Hauppauge MVP (thin client). I still have left to configure NIS, Samba and Apache. The MB is not ideal for linux, since the chipset is not fully supported yet. That means no sound or SATA for the moment.

HTPC: VIA Epia-MII 1200, Nehemia/C3 1.2GHz, 512Mb RAM, 250Gb (Gentoo linux) + 128Mb bootable CF-card w/GeeXboX devel on second IDE, Hauppauge PVR-350. This PC will be reconfigured from MythTV master to MythTV slave and booting GeeXboX off the CF-card. When the master is ready, the PVR-350 will be removed and put into the master.

Wife PC: Intel, PIII 700MHz, 384Mb RAM, 15Gb (Ubuntu linux). This PC is mainly used by wife, kids and guests for surfing and mail. Once NIS is working on the main server, I will probably put FC5/6 on this pc.

Basement PC: Intel, PIII Celeron 450MHz, 256Mb RAM, 30Gb Triple boot (Win 98 SE, BeOS 5.0 and FC4). This pc is used for ssh to the other pc's making upgrades and other stuff. It is also used for customizing rpms to my own needs.

Knoppix PC: Intel, PIII 500MHz, 384 Mb RAM, 6Gb (Knoppix 3.9 installed to disk). This pc is currently not used for anything and is due be upgraded with a new MB, CPU, RAM and a bootable CF-card for remote booting.

HTPC Master PC: Asus-A8N-VM, Athlon 64 X2, 2048Mb RAM, 80Gb SATA2 (FC5) + 250Gb external SATA2 (for multimedia files), 2 x Hauppauge PVR-350. This pc will be ready in a few weeks and will be used as the MythTV master hooked up a television set and serving the slave.

Obsolete PC: AST Advantage 6066d, Cyrix 66MHz (i486), 12Mb RAM, 128Mb bootable CF-card (MS-DOS 6.22). I have installed a dos system on a compact flash card to be able to have a fully working dos image. Doing BIOS-upgrades on PCs lacking a floppy drive is among the nice things this pc is used for. Got this great idea from http://freshrpms.net/docs/bios-flash/

Running FC5

Used to dual-boot Mandrake and eComStation (OEM OS/2 Warp 4.51) Needed the disk space so wiped my old friend OS/2 and went Linux all the way :(

The case, floppy drive and one stick of memory are the only original parts. CDs and CD-RWs have died, mobo and CPU have been changed, memory added and original 8Gb HD is in the closet :) It started life as a Celeron 400Mhz with 128Mb RAM way back when.

My son is running FC5 on an old Compaq Deskpro EC P800 (standard spec)

There's also a Sotec PC Station V4160-CB running Japanese XP (Pentium 4, 1.6Ghz) on the desk next to mine. It's the family PC.

Thanks I'm an IT tech so I ALWAYs build my own machine. Usually much cheaper. For eg I just put in the X1600 absolutly great card - mucho recommended by me (and I'm a gamer) and it retails at around the $100 mark.

At the end of the day specs of a machine doesn't really mean much as long as it does what you want it to do thats all that matters.

Looking at Avianrr's list brings back sweet memories. Brings tears to my eyes. ;-) I'm sad to say that I lost one of my boxes two days ago and I haven't determined if it's the motherboard or the CPU. I've never lost a single piece of hardware since my first PC XT. Not even a harddrive crash. I feel powerless. I have to update my list to be one less.

I was actually thinking today about getting back into POV-RAY. I could set up a render farm of some sort. that's why I originally kept them all. Problem is i've been so broke I can't find time to put together any decent scenes.

I forgot a couple more (non PC) systems I have. (working the last time I turned them on).

a) Comodore Vic 20
b) Comodore VIC 20 ( parts only)
c) Apple II+
d) Apple IIe
e) Apple IIc
f) Mac (don't know the modle # it's the old "fishtank" model)

I have a working Vic 20 and also a TRS-80 model 3 I didnt add to my list. It is fun to fire them up now and then and just screw around or show the kids. I also have a stack of BASIC manuels and program books. I have kept all my old console games too. I have an Intellivision, and Odessey, Atari 2600, NES, a few Segas and others going up to my current XBox, PS2 and GC. Also some old radios, turntables, telephones, typewritters etc... Maybe when i can ditch a few of the kids I will use one of their bedrooms as a museum of old technology.

Main PC - 1986 GEM AT Clone, backplane cut out with a modern Micro ATX backplane bolted in, along with custom cooling hardware. Power Supply custom AT power supply with ATX guts and special "button" where the rear power switch was to turn the machine on and off. Intel D815EFV "server" motherboard, socket 370, Intel 815 chipset, NVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 PCI 64MB, SoundBlaster 128 PCI, Dazzle Snazzi DV Capture Card, DVD-RW & DVD-ROM drives, 1.44MB Floppy, controlled by a Logitech optical trackball, old Northgate keyboard, and a Samsung 710MP TV Tuner LCD. Runs RedHat Fedora Core 5, and Windows 2000 Professional.

Main Laptop - IBM ThinkPad 755CD (being shipped to me as of now) - 486 DX4-100 MHz, 40MB of RAM, 1.2GB HDD, sound, SVGA video, Video i/O, 2X CD-ROM, needs some TLC. Probably going to install Win 98 SE on it, though I may upgrade the HDD to do another Win/Lin dual boot setup.

Cat Computers 486 DX4-100 MHz, 28MB of RAM, Windows For Workgroups 3.11/DOS 6.22, mostly used for DOS gaming and for mild internet access and E-mail. The only computer with IE in the whole entire place, everything else has Mozilla or Arachne on it. Cirrus Logic SVGA, SoundBlaster Vibra 16.

GEM 286 - 12 MHz 286 w/ 287 Co-Pro, 4MB RAM, 540MB HDD, Networked with TCP/IP/NetBEUI/IPXSPX all at once via Network Client 3.0. Used mostly for old DOS games and backing up 286 era software to over the LAN. Also has DSL internet via arachne, and runs Windows 3.1 at 800X600 @ 256 colors. FUll size AT, and has an old SoundBlaster Pro 2.0 in it. Also shocking is the 100 MB ATA Zip Drive I have installed on it that I actually use.

My First Decent Computer - on it's 6th or so motherboard. IBM 486 SLC 2 50, 16MB RAM, 2X 420 MB HDD, 2X CD-ROM, Reveal Sound Card, Trident 8900 SVGA 1MB. Runs like crap ever since I put that IBM SLC 2 board in, probably going to slap a super 7 or socket 370 in it later on to make a backup for my main. Won't even run an O/S because it throws up parity errors on SIMM memory that works fine.

XT Clone - IBM XT motherboard, mounted in a clone case, 1 1.44MB Floppy drive that somehow works on an original 64K-256K XT BIOS with a 16 bit controller card (no BIOS either, go figure). Runs DR-DOS 7.01 off a MaxBlast diskette using F8 to bypass all the startup files. Only used for gaming.

Apple Power Macintosh 7100/80 - PPC 601 @80 MHz, 72 MB of RAM, Mac OS 8.0. Not even networked yet as NuBUS cards are hard to find these days. Mostly used for old SIM games and Lemmings.

Athlon XP 2600 running Fedora core 5 - Current primary system.

Athlon 64 3000 running XP - game and video editing while I get the hang of this Linux stuff and replace any incompatible peripherals with Linux friendly ones. But will eventually be at least dual booted so I can still play Windows games.

Athlon XP 2400 running XP - PVR Connected to my TV instead of a VCR.

All three are networked for internet access. Print sharing works fine on the XP machines, but I have a lot to figure out with Linux yet.

If PDAs count, I have a palm T3 and an m130.

Hi John,

Nice setup. I take it you're an AMD Athlon fan?

Ya think<g>

It just turned out that way. No real dislike of Intel as such.

I tend to find the AMD chips a little cheaper if I shop around or they are discounted at the time.. I never get the top of the range chip, Just what I need at the time to do what I want So they usually work out fairly cheap. I also have Asus boards with via chipsets and nvidia video cards in all three.... could be a pattern developing here.

I have an abacus and a scratch pad like the one the guy on Blue's Clues uses.. with the really big binding ring for my crayon.

Hold on, one of the beads just fell off of my abacus....

It's a ***** doing binary with a missing bead...

You cant do bianary on a abacus. An abacus uses base 10 computing. I call shenanigans!!!!

DanThanks man! I just installed FC5 about a week ago. Buddy of mine kept telling me about it. I'm use to Arch and Slack but I really like Fedora. Last time I tried it (FC1) I wasn't impressed, but now I am!
