You only need:
- Living Room (for video)
- Laptop (wireless for sleeping room, bath and garden)
- One for your wife (she shouldn't mess up your stuff :-))
- One for the kids (or probably more for each kid) - this usually will be the fastest ones because of all the gaming :-)
There are so many reasons to have multiple PCs in your house these days:
- Firewalls (OpenBSD is excellent for that)
- Testing all of the new Linux distributions and equipment.
- Maintaining a baseline system for home finances and troubleshooting research.
- Samba file servers to back up critical stuff from workstations and store downloads.
May favourite one though has to be:
"You have your own computer. If you broke it, that's your problem!"
This takes some of the pressure off of Dad, who already has enough computer work of his own to do. My only gripe is what do we do with the old Pentium IIs that turn up that should be recycled. Can Linux really give them new life? One can only use so many firewalls. Where are all of the Pentium IIIs that nobody wants anymore?
I have smokes, drank(still do), and all kinds of other things, but computer are ever so addicting. This is very true with Linux, because you do not need a super new system to run things that are just comming out. I have 3 computers and the newest one is 3 years old. I have onee dule boot with XP abd it as the most trouble because it is only 3 years old. My 5 year old computer running Slackware 10.0 run 10.0X better. But anyway, I am off to my C.A.A.
