I have two optical drives on my computer that I am hoping to replace with a couple of drives that I have laying around not using at the moment. This will be on top of my 360gig main drive and the 2tb HDD that I added. Then when I have the cash I may switch over to SSD drives.

Up until May this year I was using a Compaq Presiaro laptop (32 bit) and running Ubuntu 16.04 (started off with Ubuntu 14.04 in 2015 when Windows 7 automatically upgraded to Windows 10, wiping out all my data in the process.) I decided in May this year to get a new laptop since for whatever reason Ubuntu 16.04 wasn't updating properly (in both update manager and in the terminal), and since Ubuntu 18.04 wasn't going to support 32 bit machines.

So, I bought a Asus F555B laptop (64 bit), and after watching Joe's videos about Mint, promptly installed Mint 18.3. I decided to keep the old laptop until it dies completely, but again, following Joe's videos, I installed and run Linux Lite on that machine. I'm just using it to tinker with Linux, and use the Asus Mint machine as my main machine.

I am using two computers here in my house.
My main computer is a HP Z800 workstation. a great machine runs dual-boot windows 7 and ubuntu 18.04.

My second computer is an apple mac pro from 2008. running macos el capitan and with bootcamp it can go to windows 7. In windows 7 I have editted the bootini with easybcd and now it can also run ubuntu mate 18.04. I could not use the bootscreen of my mac because i have changed the video card to a standard pc card. This will not give you a boot screen.

Mac's are nice as long as you stick with apple.

I'm running my first ever Linux system right now actually (first one I got to work right anyways). It's a dual boot between Windows 10 and Manjaro set up with the xfce desktop. I only just got it set up last night. I'm very excited. It was a bit of a pain to get Manjaro and Windows working together, but I don't have money for a brand new system right now, and now that it's working I definitely feel it was worth the effort. I've had this system for a few years now and it feels good to finally have an os I feel I can respect on it.

Hi...

My main machine is an Entroware Apollo, with an i7-7500U and 16 Gigs of RAM.
I got it around last Christmas with UbuntuMATE 16.04. Now I'm running Kubuntu 18.04.

I also have a Lenovo B590 with a Core i3-3100M and 8 Gigs of RAM (Originally 4 but I upgraded it.)
That runs UbuntuMATE 18.04, but doesn't get used for much other than watching movies.

Finally, there's an MSI U180 10 inch (ish) netbook that has an Atom N2600 CPU and 1 gig of ram.
On that, I have Debian installed with the Xfce desktop, and it serves as a travel netbook.
