I'm working as a Linux trainer in a company in Montpellier. They have an 
armada of brand-new Fujitsu quad-core servers which I could use very 
well. At the beginning of the course, the Windows Server trainer 
complained that "8 GB RAM was a bit too light for a server 
installation", so I decided to install a complete Linux server system on 
this old dinosaur just to nag him a little bit.
