agreed, i cant say for 9.04 but 8.04 runs fine on several "ex" win 98
computers ive given away over the last several months.  had to upgrade
the ram from 128 to 256, mind you they arent smokin fast, but fine for
web surfing, open office, etc.  one of them i threw a 128mb nvidia card
in, and runs any linux 3d game you can throw at it.  havent had 1 call
from anyone about i cant run this, or i cant open that. in fact theyre
all pretty impressed that they were immune from the lastest windows
nonsense viruses and worms about lately.
