i did find it good to have both on one screen rather than having to
switch windows, that way i could do news and see mail come in.

ack. i used to have one of those, shortly before the amiga came out,
that was also the beginning and end of my programming experience; making
a ballon fly over the screen (well, tv:)at the time you could buy
magazines with pages and pages of code. half the magazine though seemed
to be dedicated to the last issues misprints :)it seemed an awful lot of
work, and one used a tape recorder to save stuff which was temperamental
at best, so i never got any further than that.

yes of course.
, RAM is very cheap now, can your motherboard take more?
iirc no, as the other large slot has been damaged by someone trying to
do exactly that :( but i could ask about the other slots as i don't

it's a pentium II if that's of any use ?

i was assuming that, for instance, there are different versions of linux
and these different versions are libraries ? so there are gnome
libraries and kde libraries etc etc ? and that applications are
developed from the different libraries ? so that it would be best/less
consumptive to run applications which use the same libraries ? i think i
need to do some reading to gain some sort of understanding of it all.
