...a linux desktop!

I don’t even want to know how long this whole process has took me. But, I hope it’s gonna be rewarding. I’m into *nix-boxes for a while and I love them, but never ever I use X-windows. I always have connected to them through a serial cable or just on a console on the box or through SSH. But with this ‘new’ A7M266-D in a SGI320-case I constructed, well I figured there really needs to be a *nix on it and after long hours, I finally am where I wanted to be. 2 CPU’s, 7982 BogoMIPS, 1GB of RAM and a very fine desktop indeed :-) Oh, it’s Gnome 2.4 I choose :-)
