    I can grab a 400Mhz 512Mb minipc for about 30 quid. More than enough for IceWM or what have you.

    No matter how bad the layout is, or how strange the way layers work in GIMP, shortcuts and hotkeys are the key to efficient work.

    Yeah. Upgrading will work perfectly providing you havent installed foreign stuff or tweaked it or done whatever nonstandard thing with your system.

    Re: How about an alternative to Xmms?
