Lol, no, no bloated pigware (unless I run "emerge WindowsXP"!) - the 512MB was a knee-jerk reaction when I ordered the board - I think it was an extra $90 or so (over the default 128MB) and I've always been a fan of lots o' RAM.Quote:

Its an M10000 w/GCS caps. My project this weekend is to identify all of the nasties on the motherboard, get replacements, take a deep breath, and get to (de)soldering. At least there're no SMD parts to worry about!
