Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

Our diskless stations aren't uber-powerhouse machines, but they aren't bottom-of-the-barrel either: tri-core AMD AthlonII CPUs, 1 or 2 GB of RAM, onboard nvidia or AMD graphics, onboard 5.1 sound, onboard NIC. No harddrive, no CD-ROM, no moving parts other than the CPU and case fans. Under $200 CDN right now.


Tell me more. I'm in Ontario and what you describe sounds appealing as a way to take advantage of my gigabit LAN to hang a second seat off my PC (currently running Lubuntu).
