This video and your youtube channel are so after my own heart I can't believe it.
My daily drivers (baseline) are old Dells core2 duo laptops dual booted (Win/Ubuntu) with maxed out ram and ssds (basically webdev stuff doesn't really need crazy cpu power, not to mention gpu).
This goes way old school.
Thanks for the video.
This actually isn't my channel. Just posted cuz it was a video I found on Reddit that I liked. But yeah he's another one of us that won't let go :)

Well, thanks for finding it.

I would say - reusing what we have and making it useful again.
The two Dells I'm rocking are ancient and I basically boot into Ubuntu (once in a while Windows for one or two programs) and they work just fine.
You have more patience then I do. I still mess with older hardware but use modern stuff for my daily. The thing I can't stand is Windows. The last great Windows version was 7. I've used linux in the past but not as a daily driver OS. Got it installed on one of my laptops now and trying to slowly get used to it. The issue I have is the interfaces and the people who build them. So many times there should just be an option to change something but when you search through forums you get "oh just type these 17 commands into a terminal and that'll fix it each time".

Yeah the Windows 2000, XP, and 7 triad were really pretty good.
Win 10 is meh (it's fine), but I'm never going further unless I'm forced to do so, and I won't be.
Personally I went from XP to Mac and linux (work stuff) and stayed for a while.
Mac does "just work", except for weird stuff (programming) once the OS is seen as obsolete.
In the beginning linux seemed limiting, but after a while it just became second nature.
The command line is key. If you're brave enough to boot into linux you better know how to use the command line (basically a minimal amount will do the trick, just be sure to take notes).
One reason I still keep Windows around is when linux is just problematic.
It happens, and when it does Windows is there (even though it sucks).
For music and video stuff I'm Mac all the way.
Oh the command line doesn't scare me. Its when I'm sitting watching tv with my laptop on my knee and I want to do something simple.....yet I have to open a terminal to do it...well that just drives me nuts.

Something tells me that
you're your version of "simple" and the average user's users version of "simple" are not the same : )
I never have to use the command line in linux unless it's for work (dev) stuff.
