My laptop is running great on DSL and this thing is pretty old (cyrix 266, 96ram and 3gb hd) so who needs a new laptop anymore! I'm gonna blow a that thousand bucks on a vacation.
I have an old 486 computer with 16 ram and 1 gb harddrive. I think I will install DSL on it, make it work, and give it as a present to an elderly friend. He's 80 something years old retired professor from Columbia. He is currently using windows xp and has had many major problems with it. I don't know what the heck he clicks on that computer when on the net but his system keeps on blowing up. I think he'll feel better with a linux system given that it will be subjected to much less sabotage. He was a professor, I'm sure he can learn to use it.
