I have one machine where it's the sole OS. It's probably a good 5 years old with 1gig of ram and intel p4 @ 2ghz; 80 gig HD... runs like a champ! I don't see this machine dying any time soon.

So what are you running Ubuntu on?

Toshiba laptop, lower end of the A100 Satellite range. Ubuntu (7.04 Feisty, probably need to seriously look at updating/upgrading in the near future) is the main OS, with XP there "just in case".

Also occasionally on one of the Compaq Presario range

not suprised it runs like a dream, its sweet. Computers should do things NOW, not wait for a few seconds. Computers are so much more powerful than they used to be, but with all windows stuff you end up working at the same speed. Ubuntu is great on mine also:

I've got an older home-built box which I handed down to a relative, then snagged for Ubuntu when she no longer needed it. I know it has two 80GB hard drives, 512MB RAM and an ATI graphics card, but I can't remember what else.

Does Ubuntu have a tool that'll tell me just what I've got installed?

not the one in my sig, that has a windows vista x64 install with an ubuntu vm.

it is the only os on my laptop, asus f3ka and it works very well, especially with the next release cause they come with the atheros n modules in the kernel already, so then all it will need is the ati drivers

I have a Shuttle, about 6 years old. Runs Kubuntu 8.04.1 just fine as long as desktop effects are turned off. I don't bother trying to play games on it because the video card would probably implode. I used to play NWN on it though. :D The fan on the card has been disconnected for a long time now because it makes an awful noise and it is too much trouble to replace such an old one.

SWAP usage = 3%

How am I ever supposed to convince my spouse that I should be bought a new computer? :(

So what are you running Ubuntu on?

This has a P2 2ghz also. It has a 160 gig and a 40 gig with a dual boot with Windows XP.

One gig of memory, Turtle beach sound card, 3com ethernet card. And an Nvidia 7600 GS for Video. Runs great, still can even run some games well except the most current high end ones.

I like using this box for Linux cause I built it with Linux in mind using a hardware that I know works well with Linux. I built it back in 2002 I think and it was a pretty high end box back then. I have added the video card recently the old 5800 FX fan was pretty loud think the bearings were going out, and I added another 512 mb of memory at that time and put in a bigger hard drive So I had more room for dual boot.

At that link you can say it can run the worlds most graphics intensive games, but with a GeForce 8500 GT with only 256 MB of ram, I doubt it. Try to run crysis on it at max settings, and see if you get more than 4 frames per second. :D

Not that I'd be doing any better:

- intel core 2 duo e 6300 @ 1.86 GHZ

- 3 GB DDR 2 RAM

- 512 MB GeForce 8 8600 GT

- Creative Soundblaster Audigy SE sound card

- 300 GB Intern + 600 GB Extern = 900 GB harddrive space

- dual layer dvd-rewriter

- MSI-7255 mobo

- 550 Wat Coolermaster power supply

- 5.1 Surround speakers

- 20 inch widescreen ACER AL2016W, max resolution 1680 x 1050

To be honest with ya I just copied those specs off the Tigerdirect page where I ordered the computer from. I'v never attempted to play any really graphics intensive games on it. But I did remove the statement from the page.... :wink:

2gb 800MHz DDR2 - I want to replace this with 1033MHz RAM because the motherboard can handle it

I like my system, and it's quite fast, but there's room for improvement. Let's just hope I find another job soon so I can make all this a reality.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1521. Runs excellent on Ubuntu. The Broadcom 43xx wireless card must be installed through Jockey, however it is somewhat open source, I believe. The video card, an ATI Radeon x1270 is propriatory software.

The specs:

120gb 7200rpm hdd

Geez this computer has changed a lot. I better just do some comparisons.

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (Probably one of the few things in this machine that hasn't been changed, added to, or replaced.)
512 MiB RAM -> 1.5 GiB RAM (This was one of my best decisions for this computer. Ubuntu ran great on 512 M but absolutely soars on wings with 1.5 G )
120 GiB SATA HDD -> 30 GiB IDE HDD && 120 GiB SATA HDD -> 500 GiB SATA HDD (Added to, then replaced completely with a drive that's bigger'n both of them. If I had more than two SATA channels, I'd use all three. Hmmm... maybe a SATA riser...?)
350 Watt PSU -> 430 Watt PSU (After my original PSU went thermonuclear on me, I got it replaced, then ordered a better one of NewEgg and replaced THAT one. Another good buying choice.)
32x DVD-RAM Drive -> 40x DVD-RAM drive (I might be getting the seeds wrong. The faster drive replaced the slower one when the slower one died an agonizingly slow death.)

I call her Shizuku. Less than a year old at the moment and going strong. The only real problem is that I have to use OSSv4 to make the X-Fi work, but I'm hoping Creative's long overdue release of GPLed driver code will help to get it working with ALSA. There's also nvidia-glx, which I suspect has a rather severe memory leak, but there's not much I can do about that.

Well, my Debian distro runs on just two tin cans and a piece of string! Those developers over there are amazing!

(I should also like to point out that, with the next iteration of DamnSmallLinux, they are supposedly going to eliminate the "two tin cans" resource requirement and just run it on a simple length of cord.)

My Ubuntu distro runs on an AMD64 3800+ -based eMachines system, 2GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD.

But I'm getting off topic here.

Hi there WastePotato

I've installed 8.10 on a similar machine with only 1GB RAM.

My problem is the Ctrl key doesn't work for Select All (+A), copy and and paste.

Is yours OK?

I use it with an HP G61 511-WM with an AMD Sempron 2.7GHz, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 (with 336MB of memory+256MB shared system memory, 500MHz GPU), 4GB (800MHz) memory.

It runs like a champ, the only issue I have is that it doesn't want to wake up from sleep, with or without the FGLRX driver. After sleeping, the only way to wake it is to remove the battery and unplug the AC cord then reinsert the battery and the AC cord. If I just turn it on without removing all power sources, (except the RTC battery, of course), wheather trying to wake it or starting after a hard shutdown, it just sits there at a blank screen with blinking Num lock/Caps lock indicators.
