My Computer Collection

I have a collection of computers that I accumulated over the years, most of which I have acquired since I moved to California for graduate school.

My wife uses a self-built AMD Athlon XP 2000+ system, on which she runs Windows XP Pro. She does a lot of graphics work and web site design. She is learning to use a Mac with a Beige G3 266 Desktop I’ve setup with both Mac OS 9.2.2 & Mac OS X 10.2.8. I’ve acquired a Thinkpad 560 recently that I am fixing up for her as well.

The computer I use the most when I am at home is a Power Macintosh Beige G3 Tower, on which I mostly run Mac OS X 10.2.8, but somtimes boot into Mac OS 9.2.2, Mac OS 8.1, and Yellow Dog Linux 3.0.

My collection is organized by the table below.
