Little OT:
Lucky day today! I gained an old pc from a customer, was equipped with
a Pentium D 945 (one of the first Intel dual core on the market,
3.4ghz with 2x2MB cache) with 2gb ram and 160gb hdd. Motherboard dead.
I put ram and processor on my old-but-good Dell Gx620 and worked fine.
Now I have 4GB installed but I can see just 3,2gb due to limitation of
the chipset, know issue even on x64 systems. Before was a P4 3Ghz with
"just" 2Gb ram.
Tested a 1080p video and was smooth even without my Nvidia card: CPUs
never passed 70%.
Lubuntu is generally more responsive now and the difference when I use
Windows XP on a VirtualBox is HUGE (need for my work), thanks to more
ram available too. Anyway not bad for a 2006 cpu gained for free! :)

An happy weekend for sure! :D
