What is everyone using?

One of the great things about the Linux community is how perfectly serviceable older machines are still being used.  How's that for reducing the Carbon Footprint!

On a related note, I'm shifting house at the moment and found an old Toshiba TE2100 I'd forgotten I'd been given (seriously, it's scary the amount of random archaic computer equipment I've got lying around).  Even more amazing is that I found the power supply in one of the boxes I was sorting through (along with Dell AXIM and HP iPAQ Pocket PCs). 

The TE2100's old, it's lower-spec'd than my old T43 Stinkpad and the battery won't hold a charge (apparently replacement battery packs are still available) but it still powers up and runs and is in remarkably good condition for its age (hasn't taken the same hammering as my old T43) - so I'm going to put Linux on it and one of my daughters can use it.

Unfortunately, neither the AXIM nor the iPAQ work properly - or I'd be attempted to stick Linux on them, too...
