It would be awesome to see an emphasis on home servers and server clusters. I run owncloud and I recently clustered it (two web server VM's, 3 mysql galera VM's; two pfSense/HAProxy VM's). All of this runs on hardware with Intel chips (one Xeon E3, one i7, one NUC - all Haswell). I might even get another server I have so many VM's.
Unfortunately, the biggest barrier to entry for running a home server is the internet connection, not the hardware. Dynamic IP's can cause your cloud to be unavailable until dynamic DNS updates and the cache gets cleared. My encrypted offsite backups to dropbox slow my upload speed almost to a halt (and downloads from my server when I'm not on my network). I'm already paying way too much money for a static IP.
I root my devices manually.
I'd rather unlock the bootloader myself (Nexus/OnePlus) and install the su binary I downloaded directly from ChainFire than run some utility written by someone whose reputation I don't know. I also download the su binary directly - not off of a fileshare or forum post. I don't take any chances when I'm gaining root to a machine.
This doesn't pass the smell test. 20Gbps seems way too fast for wireless when wired (or fibered) 10Gpbs switch ports and NICs are so expensive. For example, this 10Gbps NIC is over $400: http://www.newegg.com/Product/...
I must be missing something here...
Not understanding the concept of a file / filesystem is more common than I thought. My sister had a flash drive (with all of her autocad drawings for school) that got corrupted. After failing to recover it, I asked why she didn't back it up. She said her Macbook didn't have autocad so she couldn't save the files to it. She now knows the difference.
