Here's my Ubuntu story;

Dell Optiplex 260GX 2.4Ghz P4 - 20
Acer 19" widescreen monitor - 90
Keyboard & mouse - 15
1Gb RAM & GeForce 6200a upgrade - 60

Total cost - 185

The knowledge that my wife will have a stable, virus free method of accessing the Net & doing anything she needs to?

Priceless!

The only problems that I encountered were getting the graphics card to work when installing it. I got 'Loading boot script...' and then a lot of hanging. But after having a search around on the forum boards and trying a few suggested solutions, I finally got there! (NB - use the search facility Luke... it actually works... :-D )

So anyway, hello everyone! :biggrin:
