My current computer is an old Quantex that works very well with
a variety of installed Linux systems (Debian, Progeny, Knoppix,
Lycoris, Mandrake, and Libranet) as well as Windows 98SE.
The only fault is that it is quite slow compared to the newer
computers. So, I would like to know if there are any new off shelf
or mail order computers on the market today that will work well with
all Linuxes and Windows.
I don't care whether it is one with a preinstalled MS Windows XP or
systemless or a preinstalled Linux, as long as it can be configured
with multiple Linux systems and MS Windows XP or 98SE as my old
I'd go for one that I need to assemble myself except that I have no
idea how to recognize components that are suitable for Linux, ie,
motherboard, modem,.......etc., especially the more recent faster
items. Something like 1.5 GHz CPU, 300 MHz FSB + for example:
The criteria is, it should be able to handle multiple Linux
installations plus MS Windows without resorting to special
drivers such as needed with winmodems.
Any recommendations---off-the-shelf or mail order, systemless or
Linux or Windows installed, or do-it-yourself.
