If you are building or upgrading your computer keep
in mind to use hardware that has open or well known specs.
When I build my next computer, I'll use a Matrox VGA.It is
outdated but at least Matrox provides documentation for its
products.Just have a look at http://www.directfb.org
The same goes for every other piece of hardware.
And if you want to save money use Linux instead of Windows.
Around here (Greece) a copy of WindowsXP Pro costs 418 Euros.
And I know that if I buy hardware with open specs, it will
be well supported in almost every operating system.
