My System Specs

Default

I've had Ubuntu 8.04 installed for a while on another machine, and i can't find any use for it other than a guest operating system for when i have guests over. That and checking email and web browsing.

On the plus side, the install is easy as can be. The system requirements are almost nothing and for what I have been using it for, it does the job excellent.

Well..if ya know how to stabilize your windows, there's no point actually on getting linux...My vista has a 2 months uptime till now, and no problems..though ubuntu has a very frendly interface, you can meet some problems with ati drivers...nvidia doesn't have problems :p..and if ya'r a gamer..then some problems over there and here..even with cedega..
