Which is why I am still streaming from an Athlon Thunderbird 1.2 ghz with a gig of ram running Ubuntu maybe.
I've also broadcasted from a few hundred mhz celeron II with maybe 256 ram running Win98. That's good and works in a pinch as long as you are not transcoding 320k mp3 into 128k aac+.
Right now where I work takes computer security to the extreme, but I have still managed to get them to allow me to jack a mac mini into their intranet and for SHOUTcast and run a request web server off it for the QC lab. Sure the cpu on the mini is a c2d, but it's only got 512 ram and the hard drive only spins at 5400 rpm. It's more than enough....
