  • What is everyone running on their DESKTOP???

    There's a whole lot of discussion of what people have in their cars, but I'd be interested in knowing what everyone has on their desktops! I'll start

    Pentium 3 1ghz Coppermine (slot 1)
    Intel vc820 mainboard (socket 370 w/ slot converter )
    256 megs RDRAM
    16GB Maxtor HD
    emu10k1 sound chip
    CDRW and DVD drives, internal ZIP 100
    NewQ Platinum PC equalizer (sweet!)
    firewire, ethernet, standard i/o

    OS: Slackware Linux 8 (heavily updated)
    Kernel 2.4.17

    I have the line out from the emu10k1 running to a Spirit Folio Powerpad powered mixer, into which I also have lines from my stereo components. I run stereo speakers from the monitor lines. It works wonderfully and can easily be converted to a pro audio recording setup. I love it!

    OKay, your turn!
