OSNews, Generic OSes At the end of the year, mainly to shamelessly fill slow news around the holidays, OSNews usually asks the readers to share with all the other readers something about their computer setup. Since OSNews can be quite diverse when it comes to computing environments, these threads can often be quite interesting. This year, please chime in with the setup you use to read OSNews - computer, OS, software and maybe even provide screenshots or photos of your proud workspace. Has it changed a lot this year? Maybe switched browser, maybe switched OS even? Let everybody know!

I got one too... BUT you can enhance it:

Linux Box:
Compaq Deskpro EN (10 years old; handed down to me last year)- Intel 815 chipset;
384MB SDRAM RAM (cannot be upgraded any further, unfortunately)


You should replace the 128MB simm with a 256MB one to get the missing 128MB to get the maximum 512MB the MoBo allow.

Though Crunch-Bang is excellent... You should try DEBRIS or SALIX ;) as that one can handle them.
Specially if you get the 256MB simm compatible with the one you have... or get 2 twins of 256MB and drop those.
