As far as I can remember (Demon keep upgrading me), my ADSL connection is 8Mbps downstream (so about 1-2Mbps upstream i think.)

I run Mac OS X on my iBook and Dual 1Ghz G4 Powermac.

I think we can keep it under control, as all OS's have their own pro's and con's. If one peson starts raging how their computer is the greatest thing inn the world and everybody else sucks etc. i'll have the admins take care of it. After all, what are they there for? :wink: :wink:

Built my own computer which runs Gentoo Linux. For editing photographs and playing the heavier games.

My wife and I each have an older laptop both of which came with Windows XP. We both have Xubuntu installed and use that primarily with the rare boot into Windows.

Connection 3 meg down, 768k up.
