Sure it can! There are a ton of great classic graphic adventures out there that will run just fine on your machine.ghosstt wrote:My PC can't run anything worth buying. It has an intergrated GFX chip
But if you are looking for other fun and/or useful applications:
vim (www.vim.org) is a great text editor. It has a bit of a learning curve, but once you learn to get around in it, it is great. It is particularly useful if you write code.
Octave (www.octave.org) is a relatively small, mostly Matlab-compatible work environment. I use Matlab all the time, but octave is just fine if you don't need the crazy toolboxes that I do. It's not exactly feature-rich, but if you have any reason to be doing a lot of discrete math, it's pretty good.
You can always run folding@home or seti@home if you want to feel useful.
Microsoft currently has a free, stripped-down version of Visual Studio (or maybe it's just Visual C++) available if you go looking for it.
Or, if you want to mess around with Java you can download jGrasp. It's a pretty user-friendly IDE, though you have to download the compiler separately. It's not much trouble to get running.
