    Hello,

    Thought to start a little thread and also as a newby to gather some info about possible hardware/software setups what to use myself.

    So BHters , what setup you have:
    1) For the internet marketing work and what are the most used programs what you have set up?
    2) Do you run your own server to keep webpages etc?
    3) What Op you running and have you tried non MS ( the big and soft one ) OPś ?
    4) Firewall and virus detection, what would be the best from your experience?
    5) Your idea about keeping the everyday machine and working machine separated ( like 2 - 4 different pcś for the work you doing )

    Also don´t be shy and dream a bit what setup You like to have in the closest7 farest future for the IM work :D


    - For me, right now for general search purpose and info gathering how to start, is a pentium 4 workhorse with 4gig of ram and win7.
    - Somewhere i have market samurai and something else ( not yet installed ) for the general start.
    - Had Nod virus detector, well not anymore since i like not resource eating stuff. Thou still running FF and malware detector and frequently i do online cleaning and scanning.
    - Would like to use Linux, not UBUNTU please :p ,thou i guess the programs do not run in there then :/
    - Have dreamed to host all my stuff in my own server, geee i am too dumb for that right now, since don´t know a shit about operating it.
    - Also since viruses and stuff are even thriving here ( well the programs ) planning to set up 2pc´s for different works ( my one old one ( AMD ) and guess i need to by some used dualcore with nice RAM also from somewhere to run more demanding soft )

    Thanks , Liiloo

    2) Do you run your own server to keep webpages etc?

    Yeah i've my own server to host my sites.

    Its Config :
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 4.4 GHz
    250 GB Raid Protected Space
    4 GB DDR III Memory
    with 4 Terabyte Bandwidth Limit Running Centos 5.5

    3) What Op you running and have you tried non MS ( the big and soft one ) OPÅ› ?
    Win 7, Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows 7. Yes of course its Windows 7! I'm not comfortable with nix and nux OS.

    4) Firewall and virus detection, what would be the best from your experience?
    Once upon a time i used kaspersky to protect my pc. But now its Avast 5, Norton Sonar and ad aware professional which keeps my box 101% safe from any kind of attacks!

    5) Your idea about keeping the everyday machine and working machine separated ( like 2 - 4 different pcÅ› for the work you doing )

    I've 7 Virtual PC's from Amazon EC2 (Extra Large Instance) which i use to run scrapebox, xrumer, senuke and all kinda automated tools. and This is my Everyday Machine and Working Machine. I play Mafia II at the same time answering my clients skype call.lol... I never really have time to move away from this PC!!!
