Purchased an Everex PC with gOS on-line, primarily to replace my aging WIN 98 box to use as a cheap Internet client,  but have since  been fascinated with the flexibility and amount of software available and the ease with which it is obtained.

(don't wish to get involved too                       much with the terminal yet.)

I'm sure you'll get lots of good answers to your questions so I won't 
get into that.  If you still have your old Win98 machine, I suggest you 
try KateOS on it.  I just installed it on a 550 MHz, P3 w/256 MB of RAM 
(Compaq DeskPro) and found it to be very impressive.
