Been running it on a little HP 1GHz celeron for a while now. Every so often
something breaks (and I file a report here and there if it's not already
reported :) ), but it's quite sound.

I also bought a new PC which is running Edgy veeeery nicely :)


And is running beryl too:-

I do have a couple of issues with my cpu/mobo (bug 53910) and my sound card
isn't supported yet (bug 63352). I'll happily buy beer or 4 at LWE for a dev
who takes a hearty stab at that second one! :D

I'll probably wipe one of my laptops and put edgy/beryl/other eyecandy on it
for LWE so the people who like pretty things can have something to gawp at.
