No, it's not a new drug, nor some remote tribe (as far as the Gorse Fox knows). GF has been resurrecting an old 400Mhz Pentium II PC with this latest version of Linux.
The nice thing about Kubuntu is that you can download it for free, and try it out from a CD without damaging or installing anything on your computer. (Oh yes, and it's free).
All in all, it seems to have gone pretty well, though it sarcastically pointed out that the BIOS on this machine was blown in 1998 and advanced power control needed to be forced... and GF had to point out that the monitor was so old it needed to use steam to drive it... but voila, it worked.
