In our little family, we have 4 computers. A little overkill if you ask me.

My computer: Custom built Core2Duo running Ubuntu 7.10.
Wifes computer: HP nc6000 running Ubuntu 7.10.
Server: HP evo D500 (or so) running Ubuntu Server 8.04.
Work laptop: Fujitsu Siemens lifebook S7110 running Windows XP SP1 (SP2 is incompatible with workplaces VPN solution... THAT'S odd...)

HP ones are second hand.
Wife wants a new one, but she'll have to wait. Summer holliday first!

May 17th, 2008, 08:23 AM

1. Desktop running Ubuntu 8.04

I have 3 computers
desktop - dual boots Vista basic and Ubuntu 8.04 laptop - XP pro laptop - XP home

May 18th, 2008, 07:36 AM

Windows XP Home service pack 2
Ubuntu 7.10 (unfortunately stuck in 600*800, let's hope the new open ATI drivers don't fail miserably like the propriatary ones.)
I'd like to get rid of Windows, but 600*800 just isn't usable.:(


Ubuntu 8.04, runs beautifully, only a couple of hiccups but I'm fixing those one by one.
Have a 45 GB partition set aside for Windows XP, but I haven't needed Windows for anything yet, so I don't think I'll use it for that. Maybe I'll put BSD or something on it, any recommendations?

May 18th, 2008, 07:47 AM

2 Computers

HP Pavillion a700n desktop,dual boot with Win XP Home and Ubuntu 8.04

Old Pentium II HP Omnibook 4100 laptop with Edubuntu 6.10

Update: I have to amend my list slightly. Just replaced the Edubuntu install on PII laptop with Ubuntu Server 8.04.

June 8th, 2008, 01:03 AM
Laptop: Apple Macbook: Leopard and Heron
Desktop 1: Athlon XP Box : XP and Heron
Desktop 2: Athlon 64 x2 Box : Heron all on its own

All relatively happy running ubuntu, macbooks sound is a bit squiffy, athlon 64 box won't wake up from suspend nicely and gets hard locks occasionally (think it might be cool and quiet playing up)

Need another os to plonk on the new amd box, then I can have dual boot on everything....something utterly random is in order I think

June 8th, 2008, 07:19 AM
2 computers:

1 Laptop: HP nx6310, Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5600 1.83 GHz - 15" TFT with Ubuntu/8.04

The laptop has and runs prefectly fine on 512MB ram but, I will be upgrading it soon to either 1GB or 2GB :-)

June 8th, 2008, 07:41 AM
Desktop 1: Windows XP/Arch
Desktop 2: Arch
Laptop 1: Windows Vista (family computer, I hardly use it so I can't be arsed)

Probably getting a MacBook in preparation for university soon. I'll likely fiddle with OSX for a bit and then toss Arch on it.

On my server/firewall I run Debian 4.0 on my other two comps i run Ubuntu 8.04.

I totally got the wrong impression looking at topic "how many of you completely switched to Ubuntu". Lot of people still using windows. I don't criticize, just making an observation.

June 19th, 2008, 10:11 PM
I got 15 computers. Here is the OS list out.

Brother's computer; windows
Mom's computer; windows
Dad's computer; Debian stable, Ubuntu 8.04
Brother's laptop; Dell Inspiron e1505; windows media center
My laptop; Dell Inspiron 8600; ubuntu 8.04
Mom's laptop; Sony VIO; windows vista
Dad's laptop(s); 2 IBM Thinkpad (Pentium 2); Debian stable

1 desktop 1 laptop HardyUbu on both. I think I've got a windows XP cdrom in a cupboard somewhere.:)

June 19th, 2008, 11:23 PM
My household has 3 computers... mine, my brother's and my father's. Mine and my brother's have Xubuntu 8.04 and XP (mine having XP Pro), and my father's just has XP... He'd have Xubuntu 8.04, but I let my cousin borrow my disk, and I don't want to make another one. Just because I have XP, don't let that discourage you... I haven't used it in over a year... my brother doesn't use his computer, and the only reason my father stuck to it long enough for me to misplace my Live CD is because he 'warships' an antiquated program which could probably just as soon be replaced with web apps as it could with Open Source software. My influence with Linux covers a broader area than this however... I have switched two of my cousins, and would have switched another still if it hadn't turned out that her computer was failing.

two hardy herons and one xp

June 20th, 2008, 08:08 AM
Two desktops, one dual-booting Ubuntu 8.04 and Fedora 9, the other dual-booting Ubuntu and Windows XP; and one laptop, dual-booting Windows Vista and Ubuntu Hardy.

I also have a pet tablet PC and a pet laptop from work that are frequent house-guests of mine. They run Vista and XP, respectively. They also both run Ubuntu if you do just the right things at boot time, but I'm the only one who knows that.

June 20th, 2008, 01:28 PM
Main Desktop (Intel Quad): Hardy and Vista (Although I haven't booted Vista in months)

Other Desktop (PPC Mac Mini) : Tiger

Tablet Laptop (2.0ghz Single Core) :Hardy

Old Desktop Replacement Laptop (2.4ghz Single Core) : Used for distro testing, Fedora or openSUSE 11 soon

File Server/Torrent Machine (2.4ghz Single Core : Mint 4.0 soon Hardy

File Server (3.0ghz HT) : FreeNAS

Media Center (3.4ghz HT) : XP Media Center 2005

Client's "Old P4" Desktop (2.5ghz) : Vista (free copy from school)

Dell (450mhz rescued from the trash) : BeOS

Others that I don't use day in and day out, one has PCBSD, and another Media Center for my dad that we don't use after getting DirectTV, and many others for parts.

Hopefully an eeePC (or similar) soon.

June 20th, 2008, 01:47 PM
After a lot of fighting and fretting I finally got my router working.

IPCop (router) -- recommend it because in 1/2 hour it was up and running and once I remember the password I'll be configuring it throug the web interface. Very easy to get going with it, and small download.
Windows XP (my wife's)
Edubuntu (for the kids) 7.10, but need to upgrade to 8.04 LTS when I get the chance. Pulise Audio screwed something up so I hope an upgrade will solve it.
Ubuntu Server (file server) but that desperately needs to be revamped. May try openSUSE for it again because I like the idea of having Yast available over SSH. Also may try CentOS.
Laptop... hmmm.... where do I begin?
Hard Drive 1
Windows XP for professional work
openSUSE for desktop
Hard Drive 2
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Kubuntu 8.04 KDE 4.0 remix
looking at the possibility of Fedora 9
looking at the possibility of PCLinuxOS
looking at the possibility of Mandriva

2 GX110's I need to figure out what I'm going to do with.

June 20th, 2008, 09:39 PM
2 in my apartment at school:

Toshiba Satellite R20 Convertible Notebook:
Win XP Pro / Tablet PC
I've thought about dual boot, but something in a VM is more likely to happen.

Used to be a Compaq, but it's now custom desktop:
Dual boot XP Home (used for media server to my XB360, engineering apps such as AutoCAD Mechanical and Inventor, etc) and Ubuntu Hardy 64-bit


2 at my parents house:

Custom Desktop:
XP Pro (for parents to use)

HP Pavilion Desktop
XP Home (for younger brother)


And I've donated enough parts to build several computers to be used for underprivileged schools in the state.

Possible second: A Sony Vaio laptop that will be sold by my current full-time employer when the office closes this September. It could end up running either Elive (Gem) or TinyMe. (Or Fluxbuntu, for that matter. My options are always "open"...)

Three, and all three have Ubuntu. One server - hosting all files, downloading usenet files and torrents. One laptop - for school, and all kinds of regular tasks. One htpc functioning as a media center pc with digital dvb cable.

Laptop - Kubuntu 7.10 KDE 3.5 (Virtual Box with Kubuntu 8.04 KDE 4) + WinXP Home
Desktop - Kubuntu 7.10 KDE 3.5
Server - Debian 3.1 (for email and web site development)
Test Desktop - Kubuntu 8.04 KDE 3.5

Should soon get another (slightly older) laptop, will see what I'll install, and looking for parts for a new desktop. The current desktop might become my test desktop and the current test box a test server.

Besides these I manage the office IT. I'm the somewhat closest thing to an sys admin in our office. So, if you know about something.... I guess we all know about that. :D
That would be about 15-20 Macs (2 OS9, the rest OSX 10.2-10.5) and a Linux server (Debian 4, 64bit version).

July 19th, 2008, 04:37 AM
Computer one. Our laptop
Compaq Computer. Celeron M, 512MB RAM, Integrated GPU, Broadcom wifi. PITA to run Linux on, but it works! :)
Ubuntu 8.04
Mandriva 2008.1 Powerpack as secondary OS
"Scratch" partition for secondary OS.

Computer two. Our Mac laptop
Apple iBook G4. Optical drive currently broken :(. Everything else is OK. 1.33Ghz, 40GB HD, 512MB RAM
Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard"

Computer three. Our "workhorse", Mac desktop
Apple iMac Core 2 Duo. 2.16ghz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HD, X1600 Radeon. External HD - 160GB is sometimes attached, and so is a 100GB external HD.
Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" Tricked out with MacPorts and a ****load of apps.
Windows Vista, games, fun stuff, etc.
VM: Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Other LiveCDs, Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows XP... etc.
It's the most powerful computer we have (my mom owns it, like most of the other computers here.) It is assigned to do VM, use Mac OS, and is my mom's main computer, plus when I want a processor intensive task (e.g. Video Work) it gets done here.

Computer four. My own personal desktop.
~1.5 Ghz P4.
Intel Integrated GPU.
Ubuntu 8.04.

Broken/unavailable computers:
Toshiba laptop:
Windows XP, Celeron M, 512MB RAM, Broken. Not sure what to do, we're gonna give away either the Compaq or the Toshiba.
Sony VAIO laptop:
Windows something, PIII, needs power cord. Once that's fixed, on goes some variety of Linux. :D
Mac Mini desktop
1.25 Ghz, 1GB RAM, 80GB HD, I believe. Currently not available.
Runs Mac OS X "Tiger."

AMD64 3500+: Dual-Boot Ubuntu and Arch.

POS AMD/350: Evil Win98SE2.1a printer/scanner server which collects evil electronic items produced by evil electronics companies who never made drivers available for anything but Win98/ME.

Ubuntu is a recent addition. I used only Arch, basically 100%, for close to 2 years, and have at least dual-booted it for over 4 years.

And I'm shopping, and I've found a shiny new toy for the moment. ;)

4. Son's laptop = Vista (so he can play his games)
5. Wife's Computer = iMac (ppc) running OSX. I would put linux on it but I can't find any distro that will install on this freakin thing :(

Edit: Once I'm done playing with Xubuntu, I will install Fedora Rawhide on my testing laptop and play with that until Fedora 10 is released.

@ deluser, you should try Linux Mandriva, it perfectly supports my Acer laptop's ATI card (and every other driver :))

You know I just might try that. My current (laptop) installation has never worked the way I have come to get used to. I even (breifly) had Gentoo on it and that worked better.

Ill take a look at Mandriva. :)

1. Laptop (mine) - Ubuntu 8.04
2. Desktop (parents) - Windows XP SP2, runs slower than mollases but mom isn't interested in fixing it.
3. Desktop (mine) - Windows 98 Second Edition, till it fell victim to the dust in my room that it collected only being turned on once or twice a year, PSU shorted, and the thing is so far and away outdated that it wasn't worth bothering with. I did save the CPU heat sink to run on my laptop PSU, since they're roughly the same size. (Early AMD Athlon, 500mhz. And to think, that thing was blisteringly fast compared tot he W95 computer we had before it).

Thinking about a Mini-ITX build in the future for fun.

All systems are controlled by Grub via Ubuntu partition on main internal HDD.

I have no idea why I have done this other than it's been raining a lot this summer in England.

Due to lack of money, I only have a laptop. That said, it isn't lacking in OS choice, quadruple booting into XP, Mandriva 2008.1, Ubuntu 8.10 alpha 4 and a Wubi install of KDE 4 8.04.

Why? Mandriva is the main one, 8.10 I'm trying to see if I like GNOME plus I like using things that are in testing for some reason, XP is for gaming and Wubi is there because I feel like it.

A total of 3 running Gutsy (one is my primary computer in my media room)

One "crash test dummy" .. it gets stuff put on and removed all the time. (just took Mint off of it .. nice system!!)

A total of 2 running XP. One is a media machine/print server in my media room and it also holds all of my high priced Adobe programs .. little else. It lives on a KVM with the primary Gutsy machine. (both use the 24" wide screen cinema display)

One XP in my guest room (along with one of the Ubutu machines on a KVM) for those of my guests that are absolutely terrified of using anything but Windows. I also use that to sync to a pair of iPaq PDA's running Windows mobile 2003 (used primarily for GPS) (both are wireless as are the PDA's.)

One gutsy machine is in my Atrium for those days when I want a lot of sunshine .. it is wireless.

EVERYTHING is on my home network.

(and a grand sum total of 7 printers dispersed between 3 rooms and those computers (only two will NOT work on Linux or across the network .. one being a Mac Raster based CMYK laser, so that is obvious and the other WILL work on Linux with a bit of work .. an Avery label printer .. just have not bothered setting that one up!)

September 7th, 2008, 02:50 AM
1 old one on XP now that is on its last leg, more of a test and play machine.
2 on vista (work related only,laptops for travel)
1 other play toy with slack 9 installed
And the new one is still in the box (straight parts only) not sure what I want on it yet.

September 7th, 2008, 06:14 AM

This is another poll - and hopefully will elicit some clever quirks or original comments.
I was sitting in my network area at home (glowing) - when reading another thread and realised that there are possibly many more people that work on more than one PC at the same time - and have more than one PC at home on their network. So the poll is as follows

How Many computers do you own or can you (with some spare time) build up out of all the spare parts lying around in drawers and cupboards?

I know my count is presently
- two laptops - trying to sell one
- two servers
- one desktop
- one spare
And I am only one person but have family members working on the desktop.

My Linux desktop, my husband's computer, a computer upstairs in the office which is used for our business and an extra one set up across the room from me that I occasionally play games on because mine is too old or other people like my nephew (who is living with me right now) use when they are visiting us.

October 18th, 2008, 08:59 PM
1 - Desktop (main computer running Intrepid and Vista dual-boot)
1 - Server (web/mail/databse running Hardy)
1 - Laptop (running ArchLinux)

I also have an old machine back home (I'm in college) that I built from spare parts running ArchLinux.

October 18th, 2008, 11:03 PM
There are three that I use on a daily basis and more if I count the ones collecting dust. Some of the dust collectors are collectors item like my TRS 80 Model 100 (1st real laptop).

2. My laptop, what I'm using now
3. My older laptop, don't use it too much anymore
4. My really old PC which is being used as a server.

Here in Germany I own only one computer - the most bland toshiba laptop. Its pretty normal, gets the job done. Two years with no problems.

But I don't really own it. It was bought with my parent's money. I hope to buy my next laptop with my own money.

October 19th, 2008, 12:04 AM
i could build about 20 w/th the spare parts lying about

October 19th, 2008, 12:14 AM
3 Gutsy machines
2 XP machines
1 "crash test dummy" for testing builds and plug-ins
2 Pocket PC PDAs

4 HP printers (two combos, one photo printer one laser)
1 Epson WIDE BED photo processing printer
1 Mac based 4 color laser printer (will not work on Linux)
1 desktop label printer.

2+ terabytes of storage between the computers

October 19th, 2008, 12:20 AM
2 Physical computers 4 actual ones...

A PC laptop and a powerful PC desktop:

the laptop boots Vista / Ubuntu Studio
the desktop books Vista / Hackintosh OSx86

all off seperate HDD giving me all the OS's and all with their correct full installs, on just 2 machines. The best bit is, dispite the fact that the two are worth about £2,500 I paid just £800 for them... which is less than you pay for a bottom of the range Mac...

October 19th, 2008, 12:21 AM
1. Dell Desktop (Ubuntu / Windows XP)
2. Media Center (Mythbuntu)
3. Laptop (Xubuntu)

I own 4 computers:

1) Dell Inspiron 530 desktop PC, dual head 20" widescreens with Ubuntu 8.04, dual booted with Vista. 2007.
2) Dell 600m laptop. Ubuntu 8.04 (upgraded since Feisty), used to be a dual boot with XP. 2004.
3) Sister's old Dell 600m laptop (nearly identical to the previous). Used for development release testing and testing other distros, 2004.
4) Mish mash box, running a counter-strike game server in Los Angeles, running CentOS 5.1. 2004.

^^ no ubuntu?

October 19th, 2008, 01:21 AM
2 desktops, 2 laptops

1. desktop, intel C2D E6700, 4gb ram, geforce 8800GTS - primarily a gaming machine, running windows tinyXP and a rarely used fedora install.

2. desktop, amd athlon 2800+, 1gb ram, geforce 6600GT - file server, media server, print server, wifi access point. Runs Ubuntu 8.04.1.

3. laptop, compal F71, intel C2D 2.66GHz, 2gb ram, geforce 8800GT, basically does everything the first two do when either of them is unavailable. Due to size, weight and a semi-broken battery, it isn't moved around much unless the relocation is at least semi-permanent. Runs tinyXP and Ubuntu 8.04.1.

4. laptop, asus eeepc 901, intel atom, 1gb ram, intel gma 950 integrated graphics - the only one I can actually be bothered to drag around with me, mainly used for uni work and listening to music. Running ubuntu-eee 8.04.1.

October 19th, 2008, 01:32 AM
Currently 2 computers:

1. Desktop machine running Ubuntu Hardy.

2. Eeepc running Ubuntu Hardy.

In a month or so, I'll be given an old machine (P3, I think). I haven't quite decided what to do with it... I'll probably stick Ubuntu on it and use it as some sort of network server. Or maybe a sandbox/target for my computer security experiments.

Server: Debian Lenny
Server: Redhat 5

I currently have 6 computers, 5 running Linux (8.04 Hardy Heron) and one runs WinXP (for supporting astronomical imaging software - there is some on Linux but it's not all there yet).
Laptop - Dell 1720 running 8.04 and WinXP under VMware.
Desktop running 8.04 for a compile workstation (for embedded work).
Desktop running 8.04 and Win2k under VMware for astro imaging support.
Server running Gutsy (I think) as my file server.
CVS server running Gutsy as a repository for software.
HP B180 PA-RISC running a very early Debian release (must upgrade that soon), just for fun!
Desktop running WinXP (shudder) because I have done a little windows work in the past ;-)

two that are actually mine. one is a laptop which currently has mandriva installed (which is horrible btw) and my desktop which is pentium 4 etc with ubuntu and windows xp installed on seperate hard drives.

vista was far to unstable and memory hogging and i'm going to try and build ubuntu up from the command line for the laptop.

October 19th, 2008, 02:10 AM
Based on the poll question 'How many computers do you really own?', I selected 2, however, the thread question is different again!

In this household, there are 6 computers - 2 laptops and 4 desktops. Both laptops (old Toshiba's) run XP, but hardly ever get used these days.

Of the 4 desktops, 2 are XP (my partners and her sister's) whilst the other two are Ubuntu 8.04 (the 'main' desktop), with the other being an old Dell with 7.10 installed, but is only a 'stand-by' unit if the main desktop goes belly up.

Therefore, I really own 2, whilst the other 4 are 'owned' by MS.

I have three machines at the moment:
2 of them, including my DELL D610 laptop, are Ubuntu 8.04 only and the third is a dual boot machine with Ubuntu and Win XP Pro.

October 19th, 2008, 02:23 AM
6 desktops + 1 laptop.

One desktop is completely Ubuntu, everything else is XP. I'm working on changing two more desktops (have to overcome some objections by the users) over to Ubuntu entirely, and dual booting two others. The last desktop will remain my gaming rig with XP. The laptop will remain XP as it is used for my work software which is Windows only.

October 19th, 2008, 05:04 AM
To answer the question as asked:
1. Desktop Vista and Ubuntu 8.10
2. Desktop Windows XP
3. HP laptop Linux Mint
4. Server Ubuntu Server 8.04
5. Server Ubuntu Server 8.04
6. Door stop, but it runs, Damn Small Linux
7. Toy Dragonfly BSD
8. Apple G3 OS 9.2
9-14 Various Macs various version of Apple OS

The G3 is the only Mac that is setup and running, but the rest of them can be up and running within 10 minutes.
