    Intel Celeron D 2.53Ghz CPU
    256Mb DDR RAM (under Windows I needed more, under Linux, I don't)
    2x Seagate 40Gb IDE HDD's (identical, but one has a rubber shock protector sleeve)
    256Mb nVidia GeForce FX 5500 \ GeForce 6600 (it's supposed to be an FX 5500, but it identifies itself as a 6600 and has the features of a 6600 such as support for dual monitors and a TV through DVI, SVGA and S-Video ports... shame it only runs 2 monitors...)
    Onboard sound
    CD burner \ DVD reader combi (been meaning to fix that problem)
    1x 15" VGA LCD from a HP Pavilion and 1x 27" LCD HDTV via DVI running at 1024x768 (I don't often use the smaller screen though)
    Belkin PCI WiFi card supporting 802.11g
    USB card reader, 2 thumb drives and a belkin Bluetooth dongle.
    Microsoft wireless optical mouse (my other one broke)

    Currently runs Ubuntu Dapper with XGL almost flawlessly following PHG's guide and if TwinView would clone the desktop rather than spanning (poorly), I'd use this to show off if I did computer trade shows again in the future (the big screen sat there demonstrating XGL and GNOME while I sit there with the smaller screen toying with it).

    (Yeah, I know it's getting kinda long in the tooth, but it sure runs sweet.)

    Both are dual boot Dapper / XP. I know...I know, but there a couple of work apps that I still need win for. Anyway, niether one spends as much as 10% of it's run time in XP. And, oh yeah, Dapper rocks... neither machine has ever run this well before.

    Re: Show off your computer!!!!!!

    Custom build.. But I forgot what's in it! It's ancient though.

    I know I chose an ASUS motherboard, a pretty good graphics card (nVidia, perhaps..) and I've currently got two chips packed in there giving me 512mb RAM. I also have the original HD which is 7GB (and still going strong!) and one that my dad gave me (20GB) when his 40GB blew up and he bought himself an 80GB.

    I found this thread hunting for information on AMD 64 X2 AMD Athlon 64 FX 62 2.8 GHz Dual-Core L2 2 MB processors, though. I'm planning a new build to give dear old bernard a new leash on life.

    Currently my computer is bog-standard grey with some holes in the front where I lost the panels! Helps with cooling though...

    ===Quite little devil. Never shuts down/reboots/stands-by/logs out. It's got apache and mysql running on it (lol). It's a very quite, cool-operating, stable cute machine. Did I mention it's small? Does most of the downloading, web surfing, word processing.

    Re: Show off your computer!!!!!!

    So I'm actually using (K)ubuntu Dapper but who can resist a "show your gear" thread???

    All gear paid for by me, stolen by me, borrowed by me, found by me, etc

    No close relatives to 'leech' off of, though I might if there were

    I put up with a pos 800 mhz box through uni, so I'm making up for it now. Still frugal though, I've only spent about $700 on the whole setup.

    Clicking the thumbnail gets you the large image:

    click here if no thumb

    Desk area
    • Dell E176FP: This is a flat panel lcd, 17-in. Obviously. Love it.
    • Logitech G15: Gaming & multimedia keyboard with lcd display. Custom bash script displays system info now, working on script to display stats in games. Minimal support currently, but groups are working on it.
    • Logitech notebook optical mouse: Cheap, works great though for gaming.
    • CAVS ShuttlePro: Oh yeah! Cheap now but I couldn't live without it for my A/V work.

    Rack area
    • HP-259: Gaming headset - cheap, eBay, but does what I need (mackie mixing headset for detailed work)
    • Catalyst 2924XL: Switch
    • Cisco 2600: Router
    • 4G iPod mini: Using amarok script to sync with it
    • Casio Exilim EX-S500: Well, just the cradle, using the camera to take the pic -> using digikam for management of images and to sync it
    • Speakers: Cost me $5 and that's how they sound. Good bass , ok for games, even 5.1 surround but they suck.
    • "cyclops": Custom NAS server. Headless.
      Debian Sarge, Samba, Webmin, NFS, Zeroconf(avahi) off of a 1G CF card on an IDE/CF interface.
      1TB RAID10 SATA array on a RocketRaid controller.
      Custom case, aluminum framing/copper screen for RFI, gloss-black plexi cover.
    • "callisto": Custom desktop. No-name case from newegg. Modded to include triple 1.5" fans for HD cooling (right side you can see the front of); blue led's behind them.
      Running Kubuntu Dapper 6.06
      40G drive for "/"
      2x 100G drives in a LVM array for "/home"
      Single 100G for "/var" (php/web dev environment, audio/video temp area)
      2G DDR ram
      AMD Athlon 64 3200, 512M cache
      ATI Radeon 9250 256M AGP video(yeah I know it's old)
    • Telco rack and shelves: Free throwaways from a datacenter

    Think that's about it. I've tried Ubuntu and Kubuntu (along with Debian from my server experience before I ran into the Ubuntu family). KDE is more to my taste but I won't start a war here. Most things came up just fine - had slight issues with the ATI card and xorg, and some minor bugs with Dapper and sound, and the lack of support for the G15 so far, but otherwise loving it.
