You might want to read this:


You might have noticed that the conversational partner has got an
ubuntu.com email address. You should assume that the attitude of Ubuntu
is far away from what Ubuntu claims to be.

Actually you already could trash machines such as mine, with a 64-bit
dual-core, just because it doesn't provide SSE3, let alone that neither
my build in ATI, nor my PCIe NVIDI graphics is fast enough for usage
with desktop environments such as GNOME, at least when using FLOSS

I still own a 32-bit mobo with an AGP graphics and I didn't sold the RAM
of that machine, when a friend ask me to sell it, because I thought
that I will use it some day, but seemingly this machine is completely
unusable nowadays.
