Based on a conversation I had with my father the other day (he's a guru) Think of the last couple of computers you've been through, which setups seemed to let you get the most work/play done? Did it make a difference if the specs were top of the line or custom or if the OS played nice? If you could tweak a lot or just deal with it as is? For example, had get Windows Vista on two laptops for school, worst experiences ever with both the hardware on one laptop and then OS itself; learned how to install WIndows 7/Linux distros on my own, much better experience even though Windows 7 is starting to act ridiculous and I can't get better hardware yet. I would say the best experience I have had so far maintaining a system so far (with my father helping with the occassional hardware update/memory expansion), is Linux Lite 2.0 on a laptop that's really kind of a lemon. I've gotten far more done on it from actual work to internet surfing than any computer I've ever used so far and I've been using them since I was like 3. I would love to put it on a better laptop and move away from Microsoft products entirely, but that will take while in this economy. So how about y'all?
