I had been considering just such an option (only a new server rather than a
desktop) - I have a collection of quite old hardware and I've already had to
replace the power supply in one box. Those old AT power supplies are getting
hard to find! My only concern is how long it usually takes to configure a
brand new box to take the place of the old one. Putting a new box in place of
this one and downgrading this one to replace the server would be quite a bit
of fiddling. Not sure I can afford the downtime.
Wonder if it'll appear on 25/12/5 !?!? (have to drop some hints elsewhere!)
However, I don't really need to build on FC3 anymore so the laptop can be put
to tasks more appropriate to it's abilities. My build times on my main
desktop are acceptable to me, albeit not as fast as yours or David's. GnuCash
is my only large project, all my other projects are tiny by comparison.
