I only have one machine : debian

As long as I don't get my one computer to do exactly what I want, I don't see any reason to get a nother one. (It doubles my troubles :wink: )

a poor but happy debian lover :wink:

So true! I have three because two are sort of gifts -- or rather they were replaced by friends who upgraded to the "latest and greatest" stuff. Normally I only use a Debian laptop. But I use one of the others for testing and development. I have much experimental stuff on it to de-bug. My wife uses the remaining one, and with Mozilla and Open Office, she doesn't even miss M$. In fact, she hardly notices, but she did ask one question: 'how come we never get viruses when there's no anti-virus program in it?' Rather than go into a three month explanation, I just told her ther was an anti-virus in it called Debian.

I have one machine, Darkstar.

The name has a long history. Somewhere around 1998 I was doing my very first Linux install, and the Slackware I installed used "darkstar" as the default host name. As a n00b, very wet behind my ears, I had absolutely no idea what it was and how to change it, but it sounded cool, so I kept it. Since then, I've named all my Linux computers Darkstar.

My 2 computers are : "down" and "up". Simply because one is downstairs and the other one is ................right, upstairs.

But some time ago when there was only one in our house , it was called "oracle".

The reason is almost the same as NGene's:
A long time ago a was following a guide to install oracle on a PC (It never worked, maybe I give it another try one of these days), in the guide the computer was named "oracle" and I never thougt of giving my computer another name. (Call it lazyness)

My girlfriend and I have two laptops in the house. Since we tend to call each other by our last names, my computer is Folger, hers is Nolan. Mine runs woody; she uses xandros, and she doesn't miss windows at all.

Grieve not for happy Claudius, he is dead;
And empty is his skull.
Pity no longer, arm-in-arm with Dread,
Walks that polished hall.

Joy, too, is fled.
But no man can have all.
