It has me doing:
I've heard Ubuntu mentioned here several times, any input on the others?
Pros and cons?
Mines a Dell Poweredge 1700 w/ Dual 900 intel procs
3 scssi drives of various sizes, and I wouldn't mind trying some RAID during
this process, to get my hands back into the game.
512 megs ram.
Anyway, I used to work on Sparc boxes, solaris mainly, a little sun one.
The last 6 or 7 years has been all windows stuff for some reason.
