don't complain about the currency. I had to choose one and I guess US $ is the currency used by most people here.

So please either use the current exchange rate or simply guess your budget in US $ ;-)

You're right, I think we can consider the USD an international currency because EUR is mainly used in Europe.

Well I live in Europe.
Anyway the value of $ and Euro are almost the same so no complain.

Well, that was true a long time ago, but currently the exchange rate is 0.75 EUR = 1 US $

Not going to complain about the currency, but now this is just so absurd LOL! Sorry, but really, it makes no sense :D

Sorry but I must complain! USD is NOT an international currency! It is just USA, stop! EUR is ways more international since it is not used mainly in the EU, but in all European territories and ex-colonies in Asia, Oceania and Africa! Not to say that most of people in Russia prefer EUR to USD! And, most important, EUR today is a stronger currency than USD.
So... let's use EUROOOOO!!! :-D

I never stated that USD is an international currency. I stated that USD is the currency known by most people, e.g. people from New Zealand, Japan, China, India, Australia, Antarctica (where the penguins are living)...

I am not sure of this... I know many in the world outside the EU prefer EUR against USD today. And consider in many countries EUR is better accepted than USD! Not to say it is more stable and valuable!
But Yaba, from your e-mail address I guess you are German... so you are an EU citizen too! Please, be a bit more proud of you to be European!

dollars... it's not too difficult for me, living in the EU ;)

the onliest thing in 2004 was an audigy 2 soundcard. but this was a gift;)
so i would like to choose 0 euros, dollars or whatever.
still no problems with my old low- cost SIS 648 board, stable and fast ;)

To avoid the my money beats your money theme here (Sides if you are 1500 miles from your home country, with pockets full of your native cash, you may very well be in a posistion where it might as well be Toilet Paper for all it's worth)

Am I the only one noticing the low level of spending on private IT. It would seem from these numbers that perhaps people are less "Gee Whiz" about hardware now than even 2 or 3 years ago. It would also lend reason to why one of the largest propriatary Personal computing companies *cough* Apple *cough* is now concentrating on the personal entertainment field.

I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where university students just toss their computers upon graduation ;)
Everytime I prep myself to go buy something, someones throwing it away. Gotta love recycling.
Funny thing is, I really don't feel the need for a lot of new techie stuff. Seems I always get speed upgrades through various Linux upgrades.
On a side note. I was planning to buy new components awhile back to build a faster comp to run photoshop more efficiently, and that's when I was running windoze.
Now I run photoshop with a wacom tablet under just a plain xserver and no bs running in the background. And I have better performance and precision with that, then I ever had on a windoze system.
Wait.. I remember, I spent 3 US dollars to take a taxi from a place to home when I found a tower and 17" monitor.. ;)


Peace

I spent more than usual this year because I went from a wired network at my apartment to a wireless network at my new house. But I went for the Belkin stuff that included large rebates at the time I bought it. I also bought an 80 GB hard drive (on eBay) so I could have a dual boot system when I first tried out Linux back in April. Oh, and I had to buy an Ultra 133 controller (also on eBay) so I could USE that hard drive with my old motherboard! The burner I got for my computer was free from old unused computers at work. So for wireless equipment, a hard drive, an IDE controller, a free burner, and an optical mouse, $201-400 sounds about right.

Most of the components in my computer are relatively ancient! I'm still running the Pentium III 450 that I built way back in high school. I've got an old ATI Rage video card and an ANALOG SoundBlaster Live. Much of that will actually change soon when my dad dismantles one of his machines he no longer uses and I mooch the spare parts off of him! :-p

'I had to choose one ...'

Nothing to complain so far...

'... and I guess US $ is the currency used by most people here.'

I object. I don't think most people here come from the US, prove me *I* am wrong, please. :)

Your statement is a (watch out, local german idiom following) free lunch for people who think US-americans see themselves as center of the universe, GODS OWN COUNTRY... and such. Not that I think that way.

Didn't he ask us *nicely* not to complain about the currency? He explained he needed to pick one and this happened to be his choice. If he had picked anything else, ANYTHING in the world, I would have done a conversion to find out how much I spent. He could have asked us how many slices of pizza we could have bought with our computer budget, and that would be just fine. Yaba is trying to be nice and apologize in advance for a decision he had to make, and you get all bitchy anyway. Get over it.

And, by the way, I don't think the US is the center of the universe, or "Gods's own country", or any crap like that. Granted, there are people that feel that way (the president in particular), but I'm not one of them. And I'm not alone. The sterotype and gross mischaracterization is not appreciated.

Sorry if I'm being harsh, I'm just a little tired of being treated like sh*t on international forums because of the decisions being made by my leaders, which I don't agree with and can't change.

Well, I am German, so I am really not one of the people, who thinks the U.S. is the center of the world.

But everyone knows USD and most people all over the world rather know the exchange rate to USD than to EUR. I don't think that there are many Japanese or Australian people that know the approximate exchange rate to EUR, but most probably more of them know the approximate exchange rate to USD.

And shame on you for daring to complain ;-)

Well, I'm Norwegian and I tend to belive that anything denominated in USD is very reasonably priced and items denominated in Euros are even cheaper, all because of the very low numbers on the price tag.

Although my "intellect" tells me that this is not economically sound, this is (and I fear it will always be) my gut feeling - but what can I do? :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
