Re: My Windows 7 challenge
I currently use two computers with separate OS's. My current Windows box is an Asus® CM1630-06 (Advance Micro Devices® Athlon II® X2 220 MPU and 760G chipset, 4 GB DDR3-1066 SDRAM main memory, a planar ATi® Radeon® HD 3000™ in reserve) packing an EAH6850 DirectCU® video card (Advance Micro Devices® Radeon® HD™ 6850 GPU, 1 GB GDDR5-1800 video memory) and a XONAR® Essence™ STX audio card (Asus® AV-100, mfd. for ASUSTeK Computer by C-Media International), plus an Antec® TruePower® New™ 750 Blue to supply the system power; its primary advantages over my Ubuntu® rig are near-zero-latency audio streaming and full support for applications unavailable in LinUX. I've a preliminary plan to rebuild it for Ubuntu® 14.04-LTS, AMD64 Edition, as its BIOS is end-of-the-lined for Microsoft® Windows® Se7en™ Service Pack n 7.0.800n (MultiProcessor Kernel 6.1.760n), upon purchase of a system to run under Windows® 8ight™ Service Pack 1 64-bit 8.0.10001 (MultiProcessor Kernel 6.2.9201).
My current LinUX box, a hot rod in an Everex® TC2502 case, of course runs Ubuntu® 12.04.2-LTS, AMD64 Edition (Kernel 3.2.0-41-generic), and is loaded with diagnostic and repair tools for addressing a snafu involving all released generations of the Microsoft® NT™ File System in an eSATA external drive, in addition to a slew of partitions in ext4 on its own hard drive for regular service.
