You heard right folks, I'm getting into the age old business. My sufu is okay. I've tested several distributions and I found Linux mint to be the stablest in terms of how well it supports new hardware. If mint doesn't work I'll try lubuntu. Anyway just wondering where to look for boxes (desktop computers) that I can get really cheap and salvage easily. Any help is appreciated. Edit: Linux mint is a lot like windows in how the UI works and it is easy to install.
