As I am sure many of you know, I don't get on with hardware. :)
Thanks to Ben's suggestion I now have a USB Sun keyboard though, and
despite people's horrific claims, *I* at least like it. So thanks,
My next question concerns a possibe replacement for my workstation.
I've had my current PC for about three years now, kindly donated by a
friend of mine. It's a nice system, but it needs replacing. I've had
enough of the CPU being at 70C plus, despite cooling attempts.
So I was looking at buying a Shuttle PC. Specifically the SD39P2
which would be a bare-bones system . What I'm curious to know is
whether any of you have used one, and how they stack up against a
regular PC? My reading suggests they can act as a pretty good desktop
replacements. Whilst the model I'm looking at only has two PCI slots,
I only really need to add a wireless PCI card and an NVidia graphics
card, so that's perfect.
Does the model I'm listing  suggest any problems with running Linux
on it? I can't see how it would at a cursive glance of what's
available. My only real reservation is what would be the driving
force of me buying this model when I could go to Dell and spend an
equivalent amount of money and get a whole lot more. :)
