I'm in a good mood. I took XP (and recovery parition) off one of my desktops an hour or two back and have my website back on it.

Current stats:

Desktop 1: Compaq Presario SR1520AN
Ubuntu 9.04 server edition.
80Gb hard drive,
1Gb RAM (upgraded from original 512Mb)
2xDVD burners (1 needs sorting out, botched firmware upgrade)
1xPCI video capture card, largely unused

Desktop 2: Old Digital Venturis FX5133
Ubuntu 6.06 server. Backup for desktop 1, and useful for playing.
3Gb hard drive (replaces the original 1Gb drive)
Modem & soundcard replaced with Ethernet & USB 1.1
CD drive not the original.

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite M200
Dual boot: Vista Home Premium & Ubuntu 9.04
Other than a RAM upgrade to 2Gb, it's pretty much same specs as when purchased.

Edit: would be Windows Free but for video editing and laziness learning more.

I have 8 machines atm.

HP laptop that runs Win7 and Arch.

My Dell mini 9 runs OSX

Desktop is a P4 machine that I built that runs WinXP and Arch.

I have two other p4 machines that run CentOS. Between the two I have DNS,DHCP,NTP, and Samba for file/print servers. Used to have a web server running but I took it down.

Acer Aspire laptop running CentOS - backup server

I have an old old machine that I built back in 1995 running WinXP. I'm not sure why I even have this machine still powered up. I don't even remember the hardware except the processor being an AMD K7.

I have an even older compaq presario which is one of the first pentium machines you could buy back in the day. It runs Win95 but I never turn it on. I keep it just for heck of it.

January 10th, 2010, 10:25 PM

There has usually been in excess of 5 computers in our house for most of the 4 years i`ve been using the things now. Well, 3 years 11 months for the more pedantic among us.:p
Most are the kids machines with currently a couple of Netbooks, a Notebook and a Desktop between the 5 of them.
Our 2 youngest girls share the Notebook set up in the sitting room for them but the other 3 all have their own machines.
I myself have the same Desktop i`ve had since buying it(the parts) specifically for Ubuntu a couple of years back and an older Compaq laptop i still have from the numerous other laptops & Desktops that seem to have passed through my hands over the last 3+ years.

All machines in the house usually run *buntu is some way shape or form although a couple of the kids machines are dualboots with XP/7.
I still mess about with other Distro installations on occasion but i`ve got dozens of Virtual Disk Images for playing around with, with room for dozens more.

Windows XP (I would put Xubuntu here but the Radeon videocard is not proprietarily supported. Got a WinXP license with it anyway.)

Nostalgia Computer
Intel P2 266
Gentoo/Feather/Xubuntu 6 multiboot experimental thing.
I hardly use this one, it's actually in my old room in my parent's house. :P

The first three I use on a near daily basis.

My roommate only has a laptop. :P

Xubuntu 9.10, ironically ;)

So how do you like Xubuntu compared to Ubuntu? Is it noticeably faster than Ubuntu at all? What has been your experience with Xubuntu compared to Ubuntu?
The reason I ask is that I have been considering switching to Xubuntu when Lucid comes out. Ubuntu has been getting rather bloated imo. The fact that Xubuntu does not include pulse audio is reason enough for me to switch.
I am very comfortable with the XFCE desktop based on my experience with Slackware and Zenwalk. I have been trying to gather peoples experiences with Xubuntu before I decide to ditch Ubuntu.
I do like the gnome desktop though. So I am still unsure if I want to swtich.
Yes, I do know that I can install XFCE on Ubuntu, and Gnome on Xubuntu. I would just like to start with Xubuntu from a clean install if I wish to go that route.

March 1st, 2010, 01:27 AM
So how do you like Xubuntu compared to Ubuntu?

I really like Xubuntu. It looks cleaner and feels cleaner and definitely boots faster compared to Ubuntu on that same machine. I am pleased by some small decisions like system in the application menu instead of on it's own.

There are ofcourse some drawbacks. Thunar (as opposed to Nautilus) does not support smb:\\, which is no problem if you don't mind a slightly different workflow using fusesmb or gvfs. Another minor drawback is the apps that come with. Sometimes I am looking for a tool that I take for granted but is in fact distro dependent like that disk management tool, don't even know the name. And that's the problem. Apt-get is easy but it's common in linux to use weird unintuitive names for apps.

9.10 was, especially for Xubuntu, a crippled release though concerning fusesmb stuff. It was a sad time for me when I upgraded the week it came out. Hence my sig. For the record, I never complained for any previous release. :)

So bluntly put, Ubuntu is a bit more easy (for a lazy user) but also a bit more bloated (and I mean that in a visual sense too).

In a nutshell I cannot really choose either, it's like cool sunglasses and a cool hat, you want both. That's why I have Ubuntu on the bigger machine (because it feels stronger) and Xubuntu on the machine where speed and being lightweight matters because of older hardware.

Note though that 'people say' you won't really notice speed difference if you have a fast/mainstream computer anyway.

Oh and I absolutely love that gksudo'ed Thunar has a red warning banner! How many times do I have multiple Nautilusses open and I have to trial and error to see which is the correct one to paste files in a system folder?

Hope that answers your question. And now for your entertainment, some youtube music (http://www.youtubedoubler.com/?video1=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3 Dmg2EyWA0Jxc&start1=&video2=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D 9FV-QwYeeRQ&start2=0&authorName=Redsandro&x=98&y=24).

2 broken PCs
1 Multi-boot (Ubuntu, Debian, FreeDOS, Windows XP)
2 Macs (one broken)
1 Laptop without a suitable Operating System.

I really like Xubuntu. It looks cleaner and feels cleaner and definitely boots faster compared to Ubuntu on that same machine. I am pleased by some small decisions like system in the application menu instead of on it's own.
That is about what I was expecting, and what others have told me.

There are ofcourse some drawbacks. Thunar (as opposed to Nautilus) does not support smb:\\
I have heard this before; and I am not sure why that is. Anyway, I have no use for Samba, so that will not be an issue for me.

Sometimes I am looking for a tool that I take for granted but is in fact distro dependent like that disk management tool, don't even know the name. And that's the problem. Apt-get is easy but it's common in linux to use weird unintuitive names for apps.
To search for apps from the terminal use aptitude.
For example, suppose you need to install the java runtine environment and the java plugin for Firefox, but you don't have a clue what the package is called in Ubuntu. Just open a terminal and run:

aptitude search java
The output will be rather long; but you will see in the output:

i sun-java6-jre
i sun-java6-plugin

The sun-java6-jre package is java (as it details in the right hand column: Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6).
i sun-java6-plugin is the plugin for Firefox. Note that the "p" before package names names means that it is purged (i.e., not installed), and the "i" before a package name means that it is installed. A "B" means broken package.
To get the details about a package run:

aptitude show sun-java6-jre
and you will be presented with all the info about that particular package.
See this for all of the details:
This is how I do my searching from the terminal.

9.10 was, especially for Xubuntu, a crippled release though concerning fusesmb stuff. It was a sad time for me when I upgraded the week it came out. Hence my sig. For the record, I never complained for any previous release. :)
Debian stable is indeed very stable. It does get out of date a bit for a desktop system though. Debian Lenny is light, fast, and rock solid on my laptop (in my sig). I have read about various problems with Debian Squeeze, though Squeeze has not even reached beta status yet.
Personally I like Slackware (hardcore distro) or Zenwalk (light and fast "beginner friendly" distro). But they are entirely different, and do not use APT.

So bluntly put, Ubuntu is a bit more easy (for a lazy user) but also a bit more bloated (and I mean that in a visual sense too).

Thank you for the detailed answer. I appreciate it.

And now for your entertainment, some youtube music (http://www.youtubedoubler.com/?video1=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3 Dmg2EyWA0Jxc&start1=&video2=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D 9FV-QwYeeRQ&start2=0&authorName=Redsandro&x=98&y=24).
Is that you playing the drums?? If so, it quite a good performance indeed! And what exactly is up with the roosters on the right screen? I find it to be very interesting that the rooster seems to "crow" exactly when the music seems to call for it. It is if the rooster is "improvising" over the music.

To search for apps from the terminal use aptitude.
Thanks for explaining. I found that disktool, I meant Palimpsest Disk Manager (See what I mean with the name? :P) And you're right. aptitude search disk utility also lists the gnome-disk-utility package, which is Palimpsest Disk Manager, but it doesn't mention that name. I didn't know it was part of Ubuntu, I thought they just chose that app. But it will probably work anyway. :)

Is that you playing the drums?? If so, it quite a good performance indeed! And what exactly is up with the roosters on the right screen? I find it to be very interesting that the rooster seems to "crow" exactly when the music seems to call for it. It is if the rooster is "improvising" over the music.
Haha no noo I wish that was me drumming. I just combined those two video's on youtubedoubler, and the point is exactly that: funny sounding combination. Sounds like death metal with the rooster. Just for laughs.

I used to play guitar. Had an accident. Cannot play anymore. Now I make tough a** music video's to make up for it. ;)

Recently acquired two Soekris boxes (a net4801 and a net4501, running Ubuntu Hardy and FreeBSD 8.0 respectively), raising the count to 11.

March 12th, 2010, 04:50 PM
Two usable ones: my desktop is a Windows 7/64 Intel Core i7, my laptop is an HP Pavillion zv6000. Used to have XP on it, now has Ubuntu 9.10 since Saturday, so it's almost a week on Linux. Had a small issue getting the wireless to work on it but that's good now. I only have one issue and that is after waking from Suspend mode, nothing happens :(. The computer powers back up but I get a black screen and unresponsive computer. Trying right now to investigate that issue here. So far I'm enjoying Ubuntu though. It's not a big deal since the machine shuts down in less than 10 seconds and takes about 20 to fully boot from a cold start.

I've lost count of the working systems. I have 2 working MAC Classics, 1 working IBM PC 8088, with cga monitor, 20 gig mfm HD, and my own menuing system in DOS, full of old kids games. 12-14? reasonably performing systems networked with 800-1.4 ghz P111, 128 AGP cards, capable of UT GOTY, which the boys love to play. A few running WIN 98, one Win 95, some XP home, a couple of kits at 3.2 ghz, 3 gigs ram, almost all built from used parts off ebay, or local discards.

I once picked up a complete ASUS MB system, 933 mhz, all there for 9$, just dropped in an old power supply, and voila! Another game machine for the kids.

When the flat panels came in. people were giving away 19" monitors, so all systems have a good view now.

Just looking around right now, I see 11+ other systems that were running when I put them down on DOS, 95, Win 3.1, some 286, some 386, more 486, some Pentium 1 & 2, couple old PowerEdge servers pumped to 1ghz cpu and 1gb memory.

I had to throw a few old systems away that were good when I shut them off, but the battery packs (pre 3002 cells) leaked over the MB, and I had to toss them out.

Just a hobby been building PCs since 1982.

Ubuntu is working its way up the food chain, now on one of those 3.2 ghz machines at 10.4.

Note: Ubuntu = Always the newest release or in the case of my laptop, usually the alphas/betas

I also have another older PC that I rebuilt with Ubuntu x32 and lent to my girlfriend's family as their secondary PC for a few years but I've recently got it back and don't have a use for it so I only chose "four or five" in the poll.

My main dual boots WinXP and Ubuntu 9.10
I made a crappy one out of scraps witch runs 9.10 as well
And then there's my Netbook, which if I ever get a charger for, I'll install 9.10 on that too. Right now it just runs XP.

2) Old Desktop - WinXP - Used to be my main machine but now serves as backup PC/entertainment center/web browser.

3) POS terminal - WinXP Embedded - Nice general purpose machine with touchscreen. Sits in the bedroom in the event Im too lazy to get up to check my email. :rolleyes:

4) Experimental Desktop - Ubuntu 9.10 - Cobbled it together with parts I had lying around. Always wanted to poke around in Linux, and I needed an OS for the machine so here I am.

Gotta tell ya. The more I use the Ubuntu box the more I like it. I had no idea just how polished Linux is, and how large the open source community as a whole had become. Amazing!:guitar:

Desktop2 : Ubuntu 10.04 64bit, Windows 7 Professional 64bit, Ubuntu Studio 10.04 64bit
Laptop : Windows 7 Home 32bit

The Laptop isn't mine & the owner refuses to make the switch to Linux even though everything he uses in Windows is available through Linux.

Currently I am using Fedora 13 on my laptop, since I'm bitten by the Intel 855 GPU issue and Fedora included the "big hammer" patch which so far (*knock on wood*) works. I'll have to try it out on the Ubuntu installation when I get a chance.

My (family) desktop is running Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows7 (which nobody is really using, but is on a separate HD so it isn't taking up space on my Ubuntu installation).

My server still runs Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS but I am looking at recreating/revamping the server and tossing between Ubuntu or CentOS but may likely end up with Ubuntu.

That leaves the old desktop which I am trying to figure out what I'm going to use it for (2nd server? media server? backup server?)

June 15th, 2010, 04:15 PM
1 - desktop - Ubuntu 10.04 X86_64 Desktop
2 - file-server #1 - Ubuntu 10.04 X86_64 Server

4 - tablet PC - (a) Ubuntu 10.04 i386, (b) Windows 7 32-bit, (c) Fedora 12, (d) OpenSUSE 11.2. All these are in use by rota.
5 - home theater PC - (a) Ubuntu 10.04 X86_64 Desktop, (b) Windows 7 64-bit. Windows is hardly ever used.
6 - wife's desktop - (a) Windows 7 64-bit, (b) Ubuntu 10.04 X86_64 Desktop. Trying to get wife to use Ubuntu.
7 - wife's laptop - same as #6.
Used to run 8.04 LTS on the servers and 9.10 on others. I have upgraded all Ubuntu installations to 10.04 LTS recently (4 weeks ago), and planning to stick with LTS only.

Not sure if I ever answered this before, but even if so things have probably changed since then.

My main PC - a Quad core q6600(?) overclocked to 3ghz, 4gb ram, geforce 9600gt video (needs update!) runs Ubuntu 10.04 64bit

Laptop - used for work 1.7ghz celeron M, 2gb ram, sis mirage3 graphics - runs Windows XP (it did come with Vista installed and while I never had issues with Vista, it's just too slow on this machine so replaced with XP)

Kids PC - My old one, a dual core AMDx2 can't remember the speed. 2gb ram, Geforce 7600 graphics(I think!) runs Windows XP, though may switch then to Linux too as the games they do play run fine under Wine, and for schoolwork there's Open Office.

The Managements laptop - This is the Mrs. Laptop, it's an AMD Turion dual core thing, 3gb memory geforce onboard graphics and it's running Vista..she refuses to switch to Linux :(

I should also count...

My Phone, an old HTC Vox, running Windows Mobile 6. Used as a phone, camera and ebook reader..need to replace really.

My Spare phone, an Orange SPV (rebadged HTC Himalaya) running Windows Mobile 6, was used for the same as the above phone, now it's just a spare in case other phone dies.

The Management's PDA - Some HP ipaq thing, running windows mobile 2003, used ss an ebook reader.

I personally own only my old Compaq, which is inoperable right now due to power strip failure. However:
1) We have a Dell 4600 desktop--Win XP Home
2) I'm typing this from an IBM Thinkpad R51...feel my pain.... dual boot Win XP Prof and Linux Mint 8
3) We have another, new Lenovo Thinkpad that's actually quite spiffy--Win XP Prof
4) I'm coincidentally ordering a Lenovo Ideapad Y560 with an i7, 8gb ram, 500gb 7200rpm drive, and dual gfx cards: Intel HD for powersaving and a dedicated ATi 5730 with 1gb ded, up to 3gb shared memory. It's beautiful. And over-the-top for a beginning college student. Will be Win7/WinXP/Linux Mint 9/Backtrack 4

The IBM was given to us by the school that one of the 'rents works at because they were replacing it with the Lenovo that said parent has. Freebie's will always be accepted, it was going to be thrown away anyways AND it came with XP Professional/Office Prof 2004. :-)

It's running 10.04 with the Intel 855 patch. I also have Fedora 13, but since Ubuntu is working a better, I"m starting to lean over that way more.

Well, I have answered this before, but there has been some changes in the ranks:
In the garage, home built AMD 3500+, Xubuntu 10.04, for internet radio while I fiddle with my car.
In my hobby/computer room:
1 home built AMD 3200+ WinXP, used just for updating my cell phone.
1 home built AMD Phenom II x6, Ubuntu 10.04 64bit, dual booting with Windows 7 64bit.
1 Asus EEEBox 1012, N330. Ubuntu 10.04 server, headless proxy/ssh/ftp/torrent server. One could believe it was actually made for the purpose.
1 laptop whitebox, 1.6Ghz celeron, Ubuntu 9.10 with edubuntu.

My laptop, Asus F3 series, T7300 cpu, Ubuntu 10.04 64bit.
Wife laptop, Acer, don't remember the spec, Ubuntu 10.04 64bit.

So, mostly Linux all over. :-)

Oh, and a windows mobile handheld. It's been through the ROM kitchen so many times, and I use it so infrequently, I can't honestly say what version of win mobile at the moment.

1: Wife's PC - Karmic32
2: My main gamer - Win7-64 (for this week, anyway)
3: My bookkeeping machine - XPSP3 - Quickbooks, doncha know
4: Dell XPS 1330 - Karmic64
5: Compaq 6444US - Karmic32 (WUBI install, and default)/XPSP3
6: Fileserver 1 - Win 2K3 with Exchange
7: Fileserver 2 - Win 2K3 with SQL engine
8: Fileserver 3 - Karmic64 (default)/2K3 - this one's nothing more than a recovery box, for gathering data from hard drives.

The servers (PCs 6, 7, and 8) all sport 6TB of usable RAID5 storage, (YES, for those of you counting, that's TWELVE 2TB drives!) on real hardware RAID cards... each! Nothing has less than 500GB of boot space, and all three of the servers are mirrored boots, with dedicated 150GB Velociraptors for their swap files! Life's FAR too short to build slow computers! LOL

Good Lord... I just counted 31.5TB of potential drive space, (not including all the external 500GB drives I carry for work and bare 500G, 1T and 1.5T drives that have been abandoned/or upgraded)) 44.5GB of RAM, and 24 CPU cores running in my house... Is this a sickness by this time? Who can I call for help?

August 23rd, 2010, 11:59 PM
FOUR ...

1 - Personal laptop with ext. mouse, display, keyboard for myself - Ubuntu 10.04.
2 - Personal laptop " " " for the wife - Ubuntu 10.04.
3 - Personal " " " for the Student/Child - Ubuntu 10.04.
4 - Laptop for entertainment/MagicJack with Windows Vista Home

Did you know ... laptops use about 1/4 the electricity of a desktop computer ???

Two working computers.
Desktop: I've been upgrading this thing a piece at a time for about 10 years. Started life as a HP pavilion with a 500mhz Celeron & Windows 98. Obviously not a thing left from that era. It's now an original Athlon 64 2800+. I dual boot XP and Lucid 64 bit. You know Windows gets no love.

Laptop: Compaq Presario R4000 with an Athlon 64 3000+. Also dual boots XP and Lucid 64 bit. Windows hasn't been started on that computer in at least 6 months. My 11 year old daughter uses it mostly, and she absolutely hates Windows.

The wifey also has a work owned Dell with XP. Funny, 'cause when she got it, she could have paid extra for Vista if she wanted it. Anyway, she's one of those people who freak out at unfamiliar computers, so even if I could install Ubuntu, she would freak out, and she couldn't use her Windows specific work programs. I have run the live USB version of Lucid on it a time or two though.

3 Machines here...

Main Workstation "StarLab" (Dual 2.7/3GB RAM)Multi-Boot:
Windows 7 (Just for the games)
Selective Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu (10.10) - Whichever I'm in the mood for.

Media Machine "StarMedia" (P4 2.0/512MB RAM)
Ubuntu 10.10 - Tunes and Movies

Web Server "StarWeb" (P4 2.8/512MB RAM)
Ubuntu 10.10 - Considering the Server Edition for this machine. Not overly critical though. Ubuntu Desktop seems to be doing fine at the job. (For what I need it for)

If it wasn't for my need of games, I'd likely ditch the Win7...

November 19th, 2010, 04:53 AM
5 Computers
1) Main Gaming: Windows 7/PC-BSD

Dell Vostro 1510 with Ubuntu 10.04LTS 32 bit and OCZ 50G SSD with sandforce 1500 controler (Limited Edition version). 10.10 would not run on this machine reliably.

Dell A90 with Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit. The netbook version would not run properly on this but the regular desktop one is fine.

HTPC Atom 330/ION with Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64 bit on a 64G Kingston SSD.

Dual Quad Xeon workstation with Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64 bit on a pair of Intel X25V SSDs in a raid stripe and 8G of ram.

1 x Dell XPS laptop dual boot Ubuntu & Vista
1 x Lenovo S10-2 netbook dual boot Ubuntu & Win7
1 x e machines netbook dual boot ubuntu & win XP home

The reason for so many Windows installs is because all are genuine copies with COA's so why not?

I have two at the moment:

My old one, which still runs on Kubuntu 9.10

The new one I've made some months ago, which has now a boot composed of..

Windows 7
Linux Mint 10
Ubuntu 10.04

..and which will see soon Mint or Ubuntu replaced by XP for legacy software e.g. old games and some "homemade" software for modding them (in the case of PES6 textures, rosters and so on)..

December 19th, 2010, 04:37 PM
i only have one and it just has ubuntu on it.

December 21st, 2010, 05:13 AM
Lucky me! I just added the Google Chrome OS Cr-48 laptop to my list! It's pretty cool so far, though I have to get used to some quirks like the cap-lock (easy to fix), the right-click, etc.

December 21st, 2010, 05:31 AM
I have 2 computers, one is a desktop with Winblows 7 on it, I also have a laptop which I am using right now with Ubuntu 10.10 on it.

My brother has 2 computers, one is a desktop with Vista/Kubuntu 10.10, He also has a macbook pro.

My mother has a laptop with Winblows Vista.

December 21st, 2010, 06:17 AM
"Winblows"? Really? I can see that with Vista, but 7 is a solid system enough.

I have just the one PC now after frying my backup in an attempt to turn it into a tablet. I've never owned a desktop, and my present machine is a 10" Eee S101. It's pure Ubuntu as always, now on 10.10 (and I've never been happier with a computer - there have been some Eee-related tweaks in Maverick, and the performance boost is equivalent to the one I got when I upgraded the RAM to two gigs.)

December 21st, 2010, 04:57 PM
Primary OS on all systems, save one, is Ubuntu. Most are dual-boot due to Windows OS requirement for some client software.

1. Gateway ES4100: Ubuntu 10.10
2. Gateway ES2200: Ubuntu 10.10
3. Compaq V2000 laptop: Ubuntu 10.10 desktop
MS Windows XP Professional
4. Asus EEE PC 700 2 gig SURF: Ubuntu 9.10 netbook edition
5. Acer Aspire One 8.9-inch: Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition
Windows XP Professional
6. Acer Aspire One AD250 10.1-inch: Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition
MS Windows XP Professional
7. Asus EEE PC 1000HEB: Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition
Windows XP Professional

Note: If I could serve my clients with LINUX only, I would never venture into a Microsoft O.S. For all computer/network clients I always strongly recommend switch to LINUX OS.

Why? If it still works, why touch it? Isn't it supported for 5 years for being a server? Means you have 6 months left before anything changes for it.

Dragon, yep, it's crashed several times due to power outages and such but the RAID still rebuilds and it serves my files perfectly. I love it.

I upgraded one of my laptops, it's a Dell with a Core i3, 2.53 GHz, 4GB RAM. Got it from the Dell Outlet for under $500.

I have one 13" acer 3820t laptop running Ubuntu. And when I get a new one sometime, I give this away to a family member.

2 years ago I also had a powerful desktop, but I don't need the power or "bigness" anymore, so gave it away. I doubt I will ever buy a desktop again.

Acer Aspire One 532h (1 GB RAM, 160 GB HD)

Both exclusively run Ubuntu 10.04, and I couldn't be happier. :D

I've been (off-and-on) a GNU/Linux user since late 2000, and every time I try going back to Windows, I end up having too many problems! :mad:

So I'm sticking with my favorite platform from now on; it's much safer.

March 21st, 2011, 08:43 AM
I have two that I personally own, and one that I haven't quite put together yet that will be a little arcade machine.
1. Desktop (main): Ubuntu 10.10 (Specs: 3.4GHz single core, 1GB RAM, integrated video)
2. Laptop: Lucid Puppy 5.2 - This laptop is half-broken, so I run the OS off of a USB (Specs: 1.9GHz dual core, 2GB RAM, Nvidia card. Shame it doesn't work properly)
3. Desktop: Puppy Arcade 10 - I haven't really done anything with this yet. (Specs: Idk, but it's quite old. It probably has 256MB RAM.)

My other family members have computers also...
Mom's computer - Windows XP
Brother's computer - Windows 7
Other brother's computer - Windows XP

Bear in mind, none of these are, by any means, top of the line. We're not rich. :P

They all are running Unity 2D.

Two can run Unity 3D but I get annoyed at how many processor cycles Compiz takes even when I'm running full screen apps and Compiz should be idle.

The 3rd laptop (Ubuntu only) is the high spec laptop out of the 3 I have & I use all the time.
The desktop (Ubuntu (default boot) & 2nd boot order is WinXP & 3rd boot order is Vista) I also use regularly.

I extremely rarely boot to the 2nd & 3rd (Windows) desktop hdd but, use 'em as storage :)

I have three that are mine.

1. My main desktop. It's quite old. I have it running Linux Mint 10 because Ubuntu 11.04 has a massive bug and I was having issues installing Debian. Things are looking good so far.

2. My laptop. I think the motherboard is half broken, and it has no HDD, but when it decides it will turn on for me I have a handy copy of Lucid Puppy to play with on my USB drive.

3. Random desktop. I don't actually use this. I was planning on making a little arcade machine, but I stopped halfway through my project. It has Puppy Arcade running on a HDD though.

The rest of the PC's are my family members' Windows PC's. 2 XP's and one 7.

Was just informed a new System76 Pangolin Performance is out. Looks sweet and the price isn't too bad.

Alas, it will be a while before I can get a new machine. My best option at this point is if the family gives my Dad a new computer, maybe I can get him to sell me his current one which is only a step-up from my current one (but going from a 12" screen to a 17" screen is VERY enticing :) )

Just need to find out if it will run Unity...
