I spend most of my time recycling equipment that the rest of you would 
probably consider to be doorstops. On older MoBos you should avoid SiS 
chipsets like the plague. I don't know if that's improved recently.

When I have a couple of hundred to spend, I'm surely going to treat myself and 
put together a Linux-compatible DAW. All Macs are purpose built, many Windows 
boxes are specifically designed and need to be considering the paucity of 
drivers that come with XP. Although reconfiguring old Windows Office boxes to 
run Debian always feels like some kind of victory, I'm always aware how much 
these machines weren't designed to do what I'm trying to do with them. This 
becomes more and more apparent as soon as you start trying to make music.
