    Watcha' Workin' With?

    Greeting's AO. I was wondering what everyone is "working with" and what they use it for. By that, I mean how many computer's/system's do you have, what OS and what is it used for. For me:

    * Win98 for Main Computer, Internet Browsing, MP3/Audio, and Gaming.

    * WinMe for Guest's and Exploitive/Vulnerability Testing.

    * OpenBSD for HTTP/E-Mail/FTP server.

    * Win2k for Project's/Business Related, Services Server. (Soon To Be)

    So, what do you have and what is it used for?

    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    Slack 9.1 (soon hopefully 10) for Websurfing, music listening, web "coding" (simple stuff), home machine: Laptop (PIII 600)

    WinXP for work (email primarily): P4 ? (it's a no name brand through the school -- think cheap!)

    Two play boxes (both in various states of disarray due to laziness): generally some variation of *nix on either one (P100 and PPC 225).

    P4M Laptop with Slack 10 right now, but I've changed about 3 distros in the past week... still looking for that perfect one . Just about anything should be done with this box, but I'm considering having it for mainly security purposes.

    Another P4 desktop that's not really mine anymore [gave it to father] but I use it for storage most of the time. I was planning on having a busted old computer used as a server or test box, but I have to see when I'll have time to build it up and whatnot.

    Centrino 1.3Ghzx/256Mb RAM Toshiba Satellite M10 laptop, currently running XP and dual boots with Linux (various distros) as my main computer.

    Crummy TIME laptop (512Mb RAM, dunno about the processor - 1+Ghz) that I will probably have to send back because it keeps segfaulting (hardware is knackered I think) which I am installing Slackware 10 on now. Used for playing around, sniffing local network traffic for debugging stuff etc.

    1.3Ghz AthlonXP/256Mb PC running FreeBSD (only machine it will boot on) as a server to play around with and learn Unix on.
