Outside of the benchmark you have listed, how much time does the average business user really use those 12 logical cores? All other things being equal (including price) wouldn't most folks be better off buying few but faster coares?
I don't think there is an ARM port for puppy. So you'd be setting yourself up for a fair bit of work.
That is precisely why I remembered it!
Not that I know of... I buy it if there was. There is a lot of development that could be done for a variety of niche processors using that idea.
I will never, ever buy a game console. But I would buy something like a SPARCplug or PCIe card which gave my Mac the capability play PS3 or XBox 360 Games natively.
I'd also love to see other CPUs available in this form factor to open access for development... but that's a different story.
yes... I wonder what happened with it.
You can read a little about it here: http://wiki.auroralinux.net/wiki/SPARCplug
MARTA, the public transit light rail in Atlanta uses a 3rd rail.
Everyone who is a close friend of mine has these sorts of hobbies. My closest friend has built a complete sleep lab in his home, complete with a sensory isolation tank. This is just part of an extended effort on his part to more fully understand and explore his dreaming and other alternate states of mind.
In my opinion the most interesting things going on now are in biology and that's sort of home lab I am building.
Oh come on now... The title is inflammatory and tone is combative. Unsurprisingly the discussion at guy's blog degenerates pretty quickly.
I don't really disagree with most of his central points: Secure by default isn't really useful to most people; OpenBSD needs more security features than older UNIX ones; and the OpenBSD team does themselves a huge disservice with their "not invented here" syndrome... But really the whole thing could be been written with a more professional tone and fostered a lot more constructive discussion.
My experience with Telekom Austria and UPC/iNode has not been substantially different.. and actually not all that different from AT&T/Mindspring in America. So my feeling is that this is entrenched telecoms firms and not formerly state run firms.
I'd love to get 24e (Fiber) but my property management company won't have anything to do with it.
I made you a friend ages ago for a feisty and factually accurate response to some repugnant and delusional hater (could have very well been Pudge, I don't remember). I don't particularly view the Slashdot relationship naming system as meaningful... it's just a way to sort the competent & interesting people from the clueless, the highly propagandized, or the unpleasantly extreme.
Clearly it isn't a lack of comments that slashdot suffers from.. it's separating the wheat from the chafe and the mod system is frequently not effective for this purpose. Truth be known, the relationship system is not a whole lot better.
In English, every word can be verbed. Would that it were so in our programming languages.
