Linux users!

Chew the fat on more "recent" computing (1995 and upwards)

Always good to see more people using it as a desktop OS.
I'm still a Winblows boy, but since my post in this thread is two years old, I'll update my Linux uses.

Core 2 Duo @ 3.16Ghz - running a recent version of Debian with two network interfaces hooked up. Provides a Samba to Netware Lite bridge using VMWare, just using the default GUI.
P4 @ 2.6Ghz - running an older verison of Debian - Sarge I think. It's a media server (really just a Samba share), which has been running without fault for years now.
Pentium 233 - running RedHat 7 just for fun, was using it for some network tasks and seeing what I could get it to do.
486DX/40 - running NetBSD 1.3 - it's not Linux, but honestly for a raw UNIX experience without having to hunt down hundreds of driver and update disks - this is a great deal of fun.
I tried XWindows, but that did not go well on a 486 with ISA graphics. Took minutes just to get a console up!

I won't even start listing my systems... :) It's a big mess. There's too many in too many different states of repair.

Actually, funnily enough it's worked out that none of my Linux installations are on Intel at the mo... Being a POWER (IBM) person at work, I'm running debian on a G3 iMac as a shellscripting scratch pad, and soon to be on a G4 PowerMac.

Tiger seems nice, but slipping behind.. I'd rather be able to patch Debian. (At least for the time being.)
"dsakey" on trademe. Apple II's are my thing.
