My system with computers
« on: March 03, 2021, 12:24:06 am »

I have win10 machine that I almost never boot. The only reason I still keep it is
200 steam games on it. When in play mood, mostly play Skyrim and The Forest.

What I use every day is a dual core machine. I have 8 of them. They are cheap
and fast, and perfect for backups to last forever.

On this dual core machines I run windows XP, it is small, simple and fast.
It can do everything I need .. e-books, movies, office, development.
What cannot do is internet.. not safe.

For internet I have dual boot setup.. after many trials, I settled on basic debian/LXDE

One machine cost me 30 euros complete with monitor and they are quiet, perfect for
study.

It is nice to see the older machines still being put to good use. I have an original early edition Athlon64 3200 K8 system on winXP pro that I keep just so I can use my old technical programs and be able to access the old file formats. There is probably upwards of 3000-5000$ worth of software on it that I cannot afford to replace or upgrade nowadays. I rarely use it but am sure happy I still have it when I need it.

For fun there are a couple of windows10 machines around the house that the family has loaded up with basic productivity programs and steam.  In the deep dark of winter I will escape into Skyrim or Fallout 4 to enter those other worlds for hours while it is -25 below and blowing snow outside the window.  With enough GPU power, both of those environments are spectacular escapes with VR.

My main personal productivity machine is a decked out iMac, no games on it.
