I had an idea that it would be helpful to start compiling a list of hardware specs that people might regularly be using to test distros on. In this way, when discussing a distro challenge or any other distro we might be playing with, other folk can refer to this list and know what hardware a particular community member is using to do so. I kind of forked the idea I heard from Jason on Linux4Everyone about keeping a database when distro maintainers need to put a call out for people to beta test.
Please return to update your specs as they evolve over time.
Terminal commands to help you determine your specs:
