    512MB with 8MB shared video.

    Old clunker still works great so I can't see upgrading anytime soon.

    Re: If you have Windows XP, why do you use linux?

    P.S. Anyone who uses phrases like Winblows, or M$, or Microsucks, etc. are not doing the Linux world any favors. You just sound childish to be honest. If Linux truly does stand on its own as a...

    Re: If you have Windows XP, why do you use linux?

    LOL... agreed.

    Like it or not, Windows has its place in the world, and at least on my machine XP was much zippier than any version of Linux I've tried. Linux is sloooow. I switched though...

    Poll: Re: KDE4 - ripoff?

    KDE has always, in my opinion, been the most 'Windows-like' of the Linux desktops. I just don't think that's a bad thing. If it shows potential Linux users that they can do the same things, and...

    Re: What brought you to ubuntu?

    To be perfectly frank, I switched from Windows to Linux when I realized how much pirated software I actually had on my machine. I don't think I personally know a single Windows user at my school...
