    How old is your primary PC?

    I thought it would be interesting to see what the typical age of a PC in these forums might be.

    I encourage people to post which *buntu (Or other OS) it runs as well.

    I'll start us off. My "main" PC is a 4 year old Dell laptop, running Ubuntu 10.04.

    Home brew pc. Soyo Dragon Plus KT600 motherboard, Athlon XP3200+ proc, 2 gigs DDR, BFG 7800GS agp. I have added parts over the years and the newest part is the WD 320gig SATA hard drive.
    I run Lucid as default on it with Xubuntu 11.10 and Mint 12 Lisa on seperate partitions. Oh, and there is another drive with Win XP.
    Runs Unity, gnome shell, and other DE's without a hitch.

    Re: How old is your primary PC?

    I have two machines that are in daily use, a laptop that's about 3 years old, and a desktop running as a server that's nearly 7 years old. I also have another laptop that I use mainly for video editing that I've had about 6 months. and a retired desktop that's something like 12 years old.

    Primary OS (older laptop): Ubuntu 11.04, 32 bit, dual boot with Windows Vista
    Only OS (Newer laptop): Windows 7, 64 bit
    Server OS: Ubuntu server 11.11, 64 bit, XP partitions recently removed.
    Older desktop (retired): came with Win98SE, replaced with Ubuntu 6.06.

    Re: How old is your primary PC?

    What if I upgraded each part of my old PC? Right now, the only part that's not upgraded is the optical drive.
