Yeah, if I'd only known. Mine is/was the most expensive part of my 
system, albiet the oldest as well.  I paid $700 when I purchased.

I usually end up taping pieces for my wife which she uses at school for 
various purposes.  Most recently I put together a slide show on a PC for 
her. RH 7.2, Netscape as the presenter.  Boots right into X and fires up 
the slideshow.  Mouseless, keyboardless.  xmms for background tune. 
Kinda like a kiosk. (sp?)  Using journalling file systems, so I told her 
she could just power it off and back on if it ever had any problems. 
She just left it on the whole week, nary a problem.

There's another teacher down the way that thinks he's a computer guru, 
has a website with a bunch of neat games, but all he's done is linked to 
other folks' sites.  Anyway I guess he's kinda got an attitude about it, 
so my wife bumped into him the other day and asked him if he'd seen her 
'linux box.'  He was puzzled, checked it out.  She powered it down and 
back up so the boot stuff scrolling by would impress him. :)

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
