Yes, it really is about time I replaced my shack computer. 

It's a P-120. Doesn't do bad tracking sats or running PSK-31, though. ;-)
Of course, it was retired from Windows service ages ago. Running Linux, it is
the core of my station, my personal development and communications (email,
websurfing, chat etc) workstation, and also serves IP traffic to our household
LAN. Has a webserver too...

Not bad for hardware Windows users would toss in the trash...
