Too bad... I've tried FireFox, and I find Opera a lot faster, more customizable, and more featured, at about half the download and install size. (And that's not even including wrangling with any of those weird FireFox extension thingys.)

Next time a Dell or G5 “falls off a truck” in my general direction I’ll ship it down to Say…

The phrase that pilots use is “what equipment you on?” (aka what plane are are you flying)  

 So what equipment is everybody on?

I'm on an Intel P-III 866, 512MB SDRAM, ATI Radeon 7000 Series (64MB), 60GB HD, WinXP Pro.  ;D

Definitely not the fastest beast on the market, but I very rarely crash or freeze, so it's fine for me!  :P

But it's not my computer... mine's a lot weaker  ;)

My Computers:

Primary:
Titanium PowerBook G4 (800 MHZ, 512, 40 GB, 80 GB Fire wire drive) Mac OS X 10.3.3, Office X

Secondary:
Self-built PC (2.4 GHZ P4, 512, 60 GB, 64 MEG All-In-Wonder) Windows XP Pro, Office 2003

These two are connected using a Belkin USB KVM to an ApplePro keyboard, Kensington mouse, and monster Hitachi 21 inch display (It nearly 10 years old and it’s finally dieing)

Old-Skool Game Machine:
Dell GX1 (400 MHZ, PII)

Server:
Duel 500 G4 running Yellow Dog Linux… the other specs escape me right now check it out a www.plutonianshore.com

Secondary Servers:
A few Pentium Pro boxes borrowed from a friend…they get upgraded this summer…

NOTE: With the exception of the PowerBook and P4 most of this is used and was rescued from dumpsters at work or other people’s basements… wish I was $$$ to buy all this…   !!!

Wow, you guys all are blowing me away. ;)

I have an AMD K6-2 350 MMX (equivalent of a PII, I think), 128MB RAM, 7GB hard drive, an ATI Rage LT Pro 4MB card, and Windows 98 (dunno if it's SE or not).

Yeah, I wish I had the money for an upgrade. :P

Peace & Luv, Liz

And I’ve got a SUN and SGI at work…along with an NMR…

NMR = Nuclear Magnetic Resonator. (Anybody want to know what Mt Dew is really made of ?  Check it out http://www.acts.org/roland/mt.dew/)

Then again equipment worth more then me technically isn’t a “personal computer” anymore is it?

My current pc's specs are somewhere floating around in another thread. Let me see if I can dig them up. Here you go:

Specs of the old pc: 233 Mhz Pentium II, 64 mb SDRam, Creative Banshee video card, one 4 GB hard drive (5400 rpm), Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold sound card.

Specs of the new pc: AMD Athlon64 3200 XP, Corsair (selected) 512 Mb DDR400, Sapphire Radeon 9800XT 256Mb, 2HD's of 111 GB (it says 120 in the specs but it's only 111 actually) 7200 rmp, 5.1 audio is on the MSI K8T Neo-FIS2R MB.

Quite a large difference don't you think?

Oh yeah, the server is a Pentium II(I) 500Mhz, with Win98SE, but that pc is maintained by my brother, so I know nothing else about it, nor do I about his pc or my parent's pc, who are all connected to a switch. 8)

Yes, but why would I buy a browser if I can get one for free?
