I'm using Core Duo daily (backup machine, web browsing), and use Pentium M as an ssh client say once in month. > So the question is: what to test? Self-compiling kernel is traditional stability test. I do have two Geodes I believe, but the hardware is quite nasty to use. (One has some kind of forth-based BIOS -- forgot the name). > BTW.
