Discussion in 'Hardware' started by digitalNeurosis28, Jan 31, 2004.

  1. hello,

    i'm looking into buying a lindows box.

    1) i could use some help selecting the right hardware
    i want at least a 100gb hd
    512mb ram (1gb is better) [upgradeable]
    2.5gb cpu (or better)
    good motherboard, video, sound, nic, modem etc. all working well
    together and with lindows

    i'm not looking for anything fancy (around $2000), as long as the system
    will work right and last a few years. any solid advice is highly
    appreciated

    2) does anybody here have any experience with this os? does apache work
    with lindows?

    thank you. have a great day.
