    I'm not a developer so pardon my question if it sounds silly:

    Would / could this Xeon Phi be useful for video transcoding? Like with Handbrake? Handbrake does a nice job of natively loading up...

    There's two problems with all these alternative lifestyle operating systems:

    Firstly, so many applications these days are thin client apps that are served by a web server on the internet, and you...

    Not sure who told you that. Might want to check your sources. With all this Cloud and Virtualization stuff these days, core count and TDP are far more important than clock speed. AMD has a 99w TDP...

    Oh you're talking desktop peecee chips. That's not so relevant these days. Compare Xeon and Opteron price/performance and see who the clear winner is. Hint: not intel. You can buy a pretty decent...

    No, they are not. AMD is faster than intel at the same price points.

    intel has better absolute performance - when you buy the very top of the intel range, there is no comparable AMD chip. But...

    Remember that Linux holds the majority of Smart Phone market, in Android.

    Apache is the #1 web server on the internet.
    BIND is the #1 DNS server on the internet.
    Linux is the #1 host of...

    Precisely. Host a Women's conference and you're full of diversity and outreach. Host a Men's conference and you're a misogynist. A pure unfiltered load of crap is what this is.

    What's wrong with german cars? I guess everyone has a preference, but seems odd to exclude based on country of origin.

    perhaps, but for fixed installations (think airport flight status screens or wall street trading floor screens) having all the same connector type eases integration. i don't know of any other video...

    I've never understood this "thin" fad with laptop computers. Who cares how thin or thick it is? What practical difference does it make? It seems to be a style-based decision, putting fashion...

    Sounds like you were using free hobbyist community distros. An odd choice for someone who's concerned about time. Those are for folks who like to tinker.

    I use Linux because I value my time,...

    My first was Slackware 2. Big old pile of floppy disks. I was so excited when Slackware 3 was released and was available on CD-ROM. In fact, I even still have the discs, part of the November 1995...

    Agree on the no need for a committee meeting, but Kodi sounds either like a pet name, or a hippy earth-child name.

    Neither is something I associate with multimedia software. 'Kodi' is going to...

    I agree, I have no desire to share services that I've paid for with freeloaders off the street. Especially since their online activities, nefarious or otherwise, can now be traced back to my IP...

    Fair enough, you have some strong points. It sounds like Shield has more drawbacks than I was aware of.

    Of course the target demographic isn't identical. But there is significant overlap I think. The Pandora was marketed as being primarily for playing vintage video games using console emulators. A...

    IMO I prefer retro gaming on my living room TV. And for that purpose, the Ouya console fills the niche perfectly, with excellent performance and a real gaming controller. And at only $99, you can't...

    Eh? OpenELEC works really well on the Pi, and plays my entire movie collection @ 1080p beautifully. Best bang-for-your-buck media center PC out there is the Pi + OpenElec.

    Yes, you get more performance on a quad core vs. a quad core with HT. This assumes a hypervisor+VM workload. The same holds true with other CPU-bound operations like video transcoding.
