Oh boy ohboyohboy! I finally got this BIG upgrade! Seven years with the same ol' dabba... And now, to a blindingly fast slick new beast :)

New config (not all that hot anyway, good enough)-Old config given in brackets...
# Intel Core 2 Duo 2.67 Ghz "Wolfdale" with 6MB L2cache (Intel P4 1.5Ghz with 256 KB negligible L2 cache)

# Intel D31 Motherboard - not v.happy with this though :| (Asus P4BM)

# 2GB DDR-II 800Mhz RAM (128 MB SDRAM heh)
# 512MB XFX Geforce 8500GT GPU (16MB nVidia Vanta)

and finally...
# Kubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy" (Windows xp prof. haha)

(Near-virgin desktop... have to set things up a bit.. and install compiz!)

@nitin: all welcome :D
@g-man: *blink* why not? if you're asking why kubuntu and not ubuntu, well I kinda have this aversion towards GNOME.

Call me an ignorant "n00b", but that did not make any sense, whatsoever, to me!

but others seem to appreciate it a lot...so it must be something really great.
