    Be sure if you play a game, that it's not on KDE, because that baby slows things down.
    that's what the windows drive is for.

    I use KDE too!! :]
    we must be soulmates.

    You can link like the WIN+P key to Pause/Play XMMS, and loads of other cool stuff!
    I can also write an XChat script to do the same while on IRC... doesn't mean I want to.

    it makes KDE perfect for workplace speed.
    except that my workplace only uses some linux, and has absolutely no desktop interaction. I hit the green button and that turns on the computer and loads a program which then initializes the scanner and printer. the other computers I work with all just load up their programs and keep them running until they're shut down (which they're usually not)

    The computer I use:
    600mhz celeron
    Intergrated graphics (32megs? 64? I don't know)
    Intergrated sounds
    384megs SDRAM
    Wireless mouse + keyboard
    19" CRT monitor
    20gig HD
    Windows 98SE

    My computer:
    450mhz AMD k-6
    ATI Rage 128 (pro?) 32meg AGP card
    Some sound card that I'm too lazy to look up right now
    384megs SDRAM
    40gig HD
    Slackware Linux

    I'm hoping to replace my computer (well, recycle it) and replay the case, motherbord, and CPU and get a nice 2ghz Athlon and hopefuly upgrade the ram to 512megs. If I'm very lucky get a new cheap video card and Windows XP as well.

    No no no, there are excellent games for Linux that run great. Unreal Tournament 2004, and a game that is free that I played yesturday for the first time:

    Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
    SOOOO MUCH FUN. You are forced to played online, at which is excellent because it runs so well! Windows for games? BAH! (except for certain games, but who needs them, it's the developer's loss)

    I poop a lot.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    My computer I built in 2002 and haven't upgraded it once. I plan on upgrading it soon, but not sure. The only game that would force a CPU-purposed upgrade would be Cotton Boomerang 1 and 2, arcade, through MAME, which runs at 25% on an AMD 3000+ and will run an estimated 40% on the top of the line AMD chip. I'm not upgrading just for arcade cruis'n/rush. My PC does all the other stuff fine for me.

    ASUS
    AMD 2000+
    512 PC2100
    40 gb WD
    160 gb WD

    My friend has a nasty setup:
    AMD 3200+
    1.5gb 3200 DDR
    XP Pro
    Radeon 9800 Pro
    3 250 gb WD
    External 500gb
    21" LCD
    700w PA system with 2 15's(for the computer)

    I only had like 2-3gb of porn before I deleted it. I remember looking through the Network, peaking into my parent's hard drive. My dad downloads some funny porn.

    Why Windows?
    Because I happen to enjoy windows games, and find windows perfect for a lot of things I want done. Linux is great, but I don't find too many things wrong with windows, espeacily in a family enviroment.

    Yeah, those silly developers, missing out on the 1% of the gaming markey who uses Linux. What are they thinking!
