View Full Version : How Many Computer Do You Use

January 30th, 2010, 10:52 AM
I use to have one computer running Window XP and now its aging but since the computer is still usable I install Linux to make it alive again. But I still miss some of the Window games and software so I bought another computer just to fulfill my computing needs.

So I got 2 computer from 2 OS. How about you guys. Maybe you add Mac to your list. Unix, Amiga, Windows, DOS (If it still around) etc...?

Wouldn't more than one computer be similar to having more than one wife?

I have all I can do to keep one maintained ;)

Popcorn? :popcorn:

I've got about 4 running now

Main desktop, spare desktop (lent to a flatmate now), spare spare desktop, and a media boxxen. I've got enough parts to have a few more running, but I cant be bothered to assemble them into working computers.

Nah, its much, much easier.

Computers dont mind if you use a different computer. Thye also dont mind if you dont pay them any attention. You can shove them in a cupboard if your annoyed at 'em and only pull them out when you feel like mucking around with uncooperative hardware LOL

Better yet, you can mix-and-match. I part from this one, a part from that one. :biggrin:
