It's a machine we have for a very specific number of tasks (number
crunching, data aquisition of muons in various fields and accelerants
and the such - you know, stuff that *really* needs processing power,
drive space and memory)

I bet you are.

My laptop has Fedora Core on, kernel 2.6.1-bk1 and 256Mb of memory -
it's a SiS everything on a chip el-cheapo model and compiling on it is a
swine - Scribus can take over an hour on this 1.2GHz box.

Luckily, I use that nice gcc thing to share the power.


Free your mind to a time where a company does not have control
Free your mind to a choice of applications which you can control
Free your mind from the closed world of those who seek total power
Free your mind to the wonderful world of free software
