"Pat picks out his top three machines for Linux. Linux is known for being picky on hardware, but the latest advanced in Linux are making the latest Linux machines looking beefier than ever."
"With Linux hitting harder and harder every day, we now need a die-hard Linux machine. It's no longer a Linux box. I see Linux box as pushing the fact that it is a machine full of extra hardware with no guts. With new technologies such as KDE 2.0, XFree86 4.0, and more and more drivers hitting each day, Linux is becoming more and more a core operating system every day."
"Why not dual-boot? Dual booting is just fine, except you don't want to be stuck with archaeic hardware in Windows. With all the new revolutions hitting in Linux, finally Windows and Linux can coexist."
"Sorry no Winmodems allowed, although (unless you run OpenLinux 2.4). Besides, Winmodems are software modems, who would want one of those?! At any rate, buying good hardware is becoming more and more difficult with all the choices out there, making buying hardware for a Linux box or for a dual-boot machine even harder than it looks. With this I delve into the three greatest Linux machines in their class."
