I remember reading that. Pirillo isn't dumb, he just lacks experience
with Linux (which is rapidly changing I suspect!). I see most of the
comments on that article are asking about requirements to achieve whats
in that video. I could probably do that on my P4 2.8 with NVidia 5900
without any trouble. Unfortunately Vista probably wont run very well on
this machine. I'll have to get Cedega to run Eve Online, which works
nicely :).
