to the internal code anymore in the future. That s why Ubuntu versions are
labeled amd64... It is a bit insidious politics invented by business
professionals to get rid off with the amateurs-Linux concurence. To achieve
the goal claiming their products are faster, safer, more reliable etc.

Motorolla 68000 CPU and the company of chips on the motherboard. I was
collected money to buy it for almost a year and more, payed a prof. to
solder additional RAM onto existed in the case....A firend gave me another
the sameone as a gift actually a waste. I never plug it ON cos it s a
Beside all this I wonder how powerfull company Microsoft actually is,
