Linux Box (homebuilt) - Cassandra, PCLOS, openSUSE (Mint first in Grub)
Windows Box (VPR Matrix) - XP home
These are networked with 3 other family member's computers - all running XP (They gotta have their games or job software).

Triple booting with Vista, Cassandra and PCLOS on my ThinkPad
PCLOS may be gone soon though, I plan to do some distro-hopping :) and Cassandra is definitely staying, it's my main OS.

Ubuntu on those boxes? Aaaaah but that is such a waste, nothing does "threads" like Solaris, not even close ;-)

BTW - Sun just loaded Solaris up on their prototype 16 core processor 8)

Nope, not at all. The performance you get e.g. with XEN on those machines is just *awesome*. :D

On My Main computer (Dell 9400 Laptop), I Run a Combination of Ubuntu Studio, Windows XP (I can't help it. Microsoft is like an abusive Spouse. I don't like it, but I stay with it for the good times), and Fedora Core 6.

At work, I use a crappy little Blue/White iMac that, by the grace of God, is able to run Mac OS X Panther. When i can't be at my desk, I use an amazing little Apple Powerbook 180c That runs Mac OS 7.1.

At home, I put together a fairly low-end desktop for the family that I threw together from salvaged (read:"useless") hardware. It's running Xubuntu 6.10 (the only CD i had available at the time, well, besides RedHat 7).

Windows XP for synchronizing my cell phone (Nokia N70) and my pocket pc (Dell Axim x51v). Linux Mint 3.0 for now (waiting anxiously KDE edition). In the past 3 months I have tried numerous distributions (openSUSE 10.2, Mandrive 2007.1 Spring, Kubuntu 7.04, Ubuntu 7.04, PCLinuxOS 2007, Debian Etch 4.0, Mint KDE Bianca 2.2, etc). Each one of the above has its pros and cons. I like KDE better (than GNOME) but the mint team has put a bigggg effort through in order to make one of the best distros out there. Cassandra does everything quite well (except for the two main reasons mentionned above - that's why I keep using XP).

I use two Desktop PCs. One with Windows XP, one with dualbooting between Mint Cassandra and Frugalware.

I'm running Mandriva Spring 2007.1 on my laptop, Mint XFCE on my older desktop computer, and on my custom-built (but rather old) desktop I'm running winxp (so I could set up my network and deal with the occasional cd or dvd that linux couldn't hadle) and Mint GNOME. I am considering getting rid of all of these my old desktops and just getting a new laptop to replace them. I'll need winvista to set up my network (yeah, like that's gonna work), but am undecided about the linux partition: Mandriva, mint xfce/gnome/kde. All good choices.

mint community rocks Clem your brilliant thanks for shareing

Postby pjm60it on Fri Sep 07, 2007 10:41 pm

I started with Bea. every beta since. Now Celena and not one issue that I could not sort out with the forum.
my acer aspire 5601 AWLMI had windows Xp on it for five minutes and it has performed flawlessly ever since Bea. I sync a palm TE2 with jpilot, hp psc1510 printer, hp photosmart M527 and no problems except the built in card reader wont automount, yet.. :roll:
Thanks a bunch every-one :D

I have a laptop at home running XP & Cassandra - my wife prefers Cassandra
It has been stable and does everything we need, listen to the radio, music, surf the internet, etc - not intensely used but no complaints
At work I use a laptop dual booting XP and Cassandra - 99+% of the time I use Cassandra on a Windows 2000 server domain with most computers running XP - again most of the time it plays nicely on the network - very stable. I can remote into everything with VNC.
(Even Evolution does fairly well connecting to the Exchange Server - a few things I have to avoid doing - otherwise I lose the connection and need to reload Evolution)
The desktop at home is still running XP - mostly because I haven't had time to mess with it and it basically just stores things (pics, some music, etc) - and I don't use it that much - someday
FYI - I just received some new laptops for work with Vista installed - brought one home this weekend to play with - at this point I'm NOT impressed at all. Vista will go away and XP loaded for the teachers receiving. It loads slow and I couldn't get it to join the domain at work - hmmmm.
thanks again - all

Hello,
I'm now running Cassandra Gnome, Celena, and Windows XP for the Mustek 600 scanner (Can't get my scanner to work with any Linux distribution).

My gear

Postby Jives on Mon Sep 24, 2007 8:50 am

On my main box (2.4GHz P4/Radeon X1600/22" LCD Widescreen) there is Cassandra, and XP for games. On my laptop (3GHz P4/GeForce Go5100) there is Cassandra, and its smooth as a baby's ass with Beryl and all. I really love that little machine as long as I don't have to lug it around. :P

On my secondary box (1.3Ghz Celeron/GeForce 7600) there is Ubuntu. Works like a charm. On my girlfriend's laptop (1.5 GHz Celeron/Radeon M6) there is also Ubuntu. Truth to be told I haven't bothered to get 3D accel working on her machine, she doesn't care for looks anyway, but freaks out if something doesn't work or is too complicated. So Ubuntu is really the only option.

On the server it's Xubuntu. Why not server ed.? Because I couldn't manage to get a decent WM to install on the server ed., and I need GTK for some apps.

I have used about every computing platform available between 1986 and now. IMHO the best platform at ATM are the OS-X Tiger Macs. Of Linuxes I have used most of the larger GNOME-based distros (and quite a few smaller ones) - I really prefer GNOME although it's a tad slow. I have to say that these days Ubuntu is the standard against which all other distros should be measured. Linux Mint seems to be forking away from Ubuntu ATM, and if it continues in the direction laid out by the new betas, it will require it's own repos in a couple of versions. That'll quadruple the workload on the crew, and I'm not going to rely too much on Mint until I see where this path leads.

Switched to Cassandra XFCE.
Very nice.
It doesn't matter if a glass is half empty or half full.
There is clearly room for more wine.
