Saying goodbye to old computers.

August 28, 2007

I’m giving away my old Pentium 4.  Right now I’m pulling all the data off the 120 gig drive I’m putting in it for it’s new owner.  The bios is so old in this thing, I don’t even think it will take a 250 GB drive.  I don’t have any Microsoft licenses that I’m not using right now (the win2k that was on this box is going on another one here).  So the new owner gets to play with Ubuntu.  I don’t know what the level of sophistication will be, but I’ll get everything working ahead of time as much as possible.  I’m told that people who don’t use computers much have a hard time telling Ubuntu apart from Windows.  That’s hard for me to believe.  I’m going to bundle in an old CRT monitor and an old printer too (if I can get it to work in Linux).  The whole thing should be ready for it’s new home by Friday.  Sigh.
