The mini-tower with the biggish monitor is piro, a K6-2 400 with 64MB of RAM. It's the machine that actually connects to the Internet, and where I handle all my mail and Web stuff. It's running Slackware 7.0, with Linux 2.4.0-test1-ac5.
That Frighteningly Fuschia iMac is spork. It's got a 333MHz G3, and I've upgraded it to 96MB of RAM. I got it for relatively cheap, since the brand-new models had just come out. It's usable, but now if I were to get a PPC machine for Linux, I'd get one of those G4 towers. Right now it's at work, hooked up to a gigantic Sun monitor. Through 2 separate adapters, no less. It's running LinuxPPC 1999, but only enough to get it to boot. I've built the rest from source.
That's my i-opener, glimmer, on the left. I haven't had a chance to play around with it yet, but the hard drive and FreeBSD CDs are in the mail. Heh. It was pretty funny when I went to get it, though... I saw it when it first popped up on Slashdot, and dashed down to Circuit City. The salesdroid dropped the price from $299 to $99 as I was examining the display model, and the following dialog ensued:
me: "I'll take one."
him: "Are you sure? It's not compatible with real computers."
me: "That's okay. I have other uses for it."
He had the weirdest look on his face when I told him that...
