The correct term for this air-gap horseshit is called a Tempest Attack, and we've been doing it for years... 20 years? 30 YEARS???

"Prior to the Montreal Protocol, large quantities of carbon tetrachloride were used to produce the chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants R-11 (trichlorofluoromethane) and R-12 (dichlorodifluoromethane). However, these refrigerants play a role in ozone depletion and have been phased out." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...
I know because it's happening all over the Coachella Valley. I have seen cut rate guys NOT reclaiming or pumping down coils - jettisoning 10+ pounds each time. This occurs at least 50 times a day here in the desert that I know of. Even top paid contractors like callthegeneral.com just don't care because their commission is based on number of visits per day, and it takes an extra 15-25 minutes to pump a system down before removal. The wholesale houses even pay a couple $$$ per pound of the reclaimed stuff, but commission rates ensure blowing off straight to atmosphere every time.
You are correct. Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but for automated systems there seems to be a need for constant babysitting for HP equipment. Seems like HP support is always showing up to do SOMETHING to a server related to drive firmware or cooling fans, while the Dell equipment just keeps running ad infinitum. HP support has only cost $300K this quarter for the aforementioned issues, and caused downsizing in a department that could use a few more bright staff members. Cooling fans and drive firmware - is this for real?
The key is to know what the hell you're doing, and let the spectators watch the show. New or used, buy for what your customer needs - NOT for the free tickets Vendor X gives you as an incentive to buy their gear. Being a professional in this field, here are some pointers.
- Contact your power company for virtualization incentives to upgrade all that old hardware.
- Use free software that is commercially supported, like XenServer, QuantaStor, and Zimbra.
- Stick with a vendor that produces quality gear like Dell (Sorry HP, but you know why)
- Buy from wholesale vendors like Stallard, or from established eBay vendors.

Microsoft couldn't let this go unchecked.
Someone at the top of the ladder @ Microsoft must have seen where this was going.

Lets see - I'm building a UAV using RS-422 for fly-by-wire operation using a RTOS and embedded hardware. Do I want TCP/IP or USB buffers involved on servos that control its ability to stay in the air? I can only imagine getting a lecture from an engineer at Raytheon about keeping things simple.
I wonder if someone will make a joke about selling Toyota Motor Corp a USB accelerator control...

Try this before the "maxyimus" fix - boot Ubuntu or Systernals ERD and delete that pesky HIBERFIL.SYS and the $RECYCLER while your at it. Reboot to a functional computer. If this doesn't fix then "maxyimus" it is.
