What is everyone using?

I myself am using an old hp Pavilion a6303w that used to run Windows XP on it. It has 2 gigs of ram with an Intel® Pentium® Dual CPU E2140 processor. I am using this to run Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver) with the Mate 1.20.1 GUI. This may not be the greatest setup to be using. This is my first attempt at making a Linux computer. 

The tower and the computer both need some work. I am missing a couple of bay covers where optical drives are. I will be replacing them with HDD or SSD's (Most likely with HDD's since I have a couple of them laying around). I will be adding a much faster processor and maxing out the ram to 8 gigs when I have the funds to do so.
Have 3 machines. 1 Lenovo laptop dual booting Ubuntu Mate & windoz 7 w/ 4gb mem,, 500gb hdd. i3 dual core cpu.
Next is the HP 8200 w/12gb mem., 1 tb hdd i5 2400 cpu booting Mate19.04.
Next is my beasty Dell T5500 w/ a hyper threaded quad core xeon, 2 tb hdd, 12 gb mem. Nvidia quadro FX 3800
I parted out the hdd into 4 500gb parts, one for each OS. Right now only booting Mageia 7. I like to mess with the different Os's that well run this machine. This machine has been my greatest challenge. I couldn't get Mate to run right on it's workstation hardware. So I have been trying out Os's like CentOs, Fedora, and Mageia. Just trying to see which one runs the best on it. Mageia seems to run the best at this time.
This is what brought me here to ezeelinux.
