What, even if said PC is a K6-II/400 running Linux? I've got two PCs running
Slackware 8.1 - one of them is my NAT router/webserver
( and the other is the machine I'm typing on now.
Now if only I could persuade SWMBO to learn how to use KDE...
I'd still like a DEC Alpha based box of sufficient speed to outrun the K6
(router) though. Especially if it used less power than said router (which is
noisy, power hungry and runs quite hot)...
