Linux Mac and Windows
Authored by: juz10mac on Apr 21, '05 07:40:31AM

At my house my brother and I are the only Mac users. I have an iBook G4 and he has my old iBook G3 (I sold it to him when the iBook G4 came out). I have a KnoppMyth machine (a Linux distribution used for TV recording and PVR features), and I have a Mandrake Linux server. All the other computers at my house are PC's running Windows 98, NT, Me, XP-home and XP-professional. In total my household has about 10 working computers at any given time (and there are only 6 of us living here!). I have to be fair, though; my dad needs a lot of computer equipment for his work, He's a freelance video editor and four of the computers are his. If we got two more computers there would be two computers for every person in my family! Initially, we had to decide whether or not to setup a physical LAN or to use wireless. We only had a few computers we wanted to connect to the network at first, so we started out by running a couple of wires through the attic. By now, though, wireless would have made things so much easier... but that's another story. At my house I'm the computer-guy, I'm sure a lot of you can relate. I know that if it weren't for me, we would not have so much computer stuff. I love setting things up, especially computers for specific tasks (like a server or PVR for example).
