    To the latest Ubuntu release (or Xubuntu might be better suited for older hardware).
    Do you folks like coffee?

    Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 (Overclocked to 3.15ghz on air)
    Asus P5Q-EM purchased 2008
    8GB PC2-6400
    Seagate 640GB SATA2
    ATI Radeon HD 5570 (Overclocked via 12.10 CCC)

    Still a worthy system for what I do, but I built it initially as a HTPC.

    After 2010, I change the os to Ubuntu 10.04 due to that the fat-laggy Windows XP SP3 can't work fine. Everything on that old-laptop is fine, I even used it for writing my proposal and resume for the science job. I have to say, Ubuntu 10.04 works super fine for my laptop, and I can't tolerate about the stop of support in 2013... where should I go?
    Xubuntu 12.04.1 LTS

    A new version of Xubuntu is released every six months, every fourth of which is a Long Term Support release, meaning that you are eligible to security updates for three years as opposed to the not-too-shabby-either eighteen months that you get with the normal releases.

    I had to look up how old my current desktop is and it's about a year and a half old - bought the parts in June of 2011.

    Re: How old is your main home PC in 2013

    defining the main or most used in my house is impossible. I have 4 computers
    online. 2 desk tops and 2 laptops.

    Mine (this one) is the one i use for work and research , email and some chatting usually until mid afternoon. no idea how old it is (hp5713), i traded the entire system for a laptop about a year and a half ago.

    My Wifes is her primary computer, an emachines desktop that we bought used for 75.00 again the entire system and a printer,about 2 and a half years ago. an EL1200 as i recall. It had win xp on it but wouldnt work. Barely booted. 225 viruses later it worked fine, install 10.10 and zorin and it hasnt stopped.

    The one on my bench is a dell d800 i bought from a coworker of my wifes for 50.00 i use it for testing and file transfer stuff.

    The last is an eee i bought in a pawn shop for my birthday 3 years ago its a 1005ha. used primarily in the afternoon and evening for chat, skype, or when i need to go mobile.

    I guess there is no primary in my house. each has its own primary purpose and function, all run a flavor of ubuntu.
    The only dumb question is the one not asked.

    I've had my desktop less than a year, but it was 3 1/2 years old when I got it. My "new" laptop (a Christmas gift to myself) is about the same age.

    Hi all. Long time no see.

    Gateway Solo 2150.
    CPU~Single core Celeron (Coppermine) (-UP-) clocked at 501.145 Mhz Kernel~3.6.11-1-ARCH i686 Up~1:43 Mem~55.2/277.9MB HDD~80.0GB(12.5% used) Procs~72 Client~Shell inxi~1.8.26
    BIOS date is from 2000 but I think these were sold earlier than that. So ... +/- 12 years?

    Actually, it was the laptop's keyboard controller that failed. The keyboard controller is part of the motherboard and not part of the keyboard that can be replaced. I had replaced the keyboard a year earlier. I probably could have used the laptop with a USB keyboard; however, what is the point of having something mobile if you have to carry a keyboard with you. Beside that, I was waiting for an excuse to get a new laptop.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.
