How's it working for you? Is it usable?

I have Linux Mint on the 900 mHz PowerPC iBook, and it sometimes takes forever to respond... even running one program at a time.

We're working on switching to a different webhost, so there may be some service interruptions here and there. Everything should remain the same, but a few errors/weird things are inevitable. Let me ...

Single core, 'cause I'm sure the switch only has one CPU core.

I got home from a trip a few days ago, and found I couldn't connect to my NAS. I looked at the switch it was connected to, and it was ...
