ENOBRAIN. Rant postponed.


Question instead. I want to buy a new computer because this here computer what I have has insufficient memory to manage, er, twitter.

I figure I'd go to World Of Computing and buy a small computer with a 1TB hard drive and 8GB of memory and no OS and stick my current Debian install on it and go "hey presto, a new computer". Are there flaws in my plan? Looks like costing c. 300 quid (I don't need a new monitor).

Sounds like a good plan - so long as you make sure that the hardware all has Linux drivers.

I know someone else on DW recently had the "insufficient memory" problem and found switching to LXDE solved their issues (or at least, postponed the problem for a bit).
