For a little while at the end of the 00's I was worried that the kids (18-24 or so) (technically at 33 I'm a millenial too, but I associate that word with the younger set) who grew up with broadband, streaming video, web 2.0 etc etc were going to take all of the IT jobs. The low hanging tech support and the higher end sysadmin and DB admin jobs as well--- BOY WAS I WRONG. Their parents think they are tech wiz's because they know how to install different browsers and get basic errors out of the way, but they're not real geeks. They never had to get a dial up modem to work in Redhat 3, they bitch about building computers like this guy did and don't pose a real threat.
I love building new desktops, it's a lot of fun to piece them together and figure out the best bang for your buck. You don't need $2k to build a decent gaming rig, probably closer to $1,200 or so, but I haven't looked in a long time. So yeah, fuck this Motherboard author, wtf does he know.
