    Same here, do all my updates via USB floppy drive. When it comes to selecting a good Linux mobo, I normally go with a server/workstation board, like those from SuperMicro. A server/workstation...

    So I decided to give Fedora 21 a try. I get a kernel oops during boot-up. Awesome. It installs just fine, but upon initial bootup after the installation, it gives the kernel oops.

    These super inexpensive SSD's are a little scary to me. I'm not an SSD expert, but I'd want to see numbers on URE rate, rated write cycles per cell, etc. We know SSD's perform pretty darned well,...

    Who says we must choose between using "hardware to keep the system secure" and risking compromise? Isn't this the same bogus justification given by peddlers of DRM technology? I suspect this is...

    FWIW, I bought a GTX 780 the day they became available. The top of the line 4 GB Superclocked model from EVGA. $665 is what I paid for it, the most I've ever paid for a single computer part. From...

    My favorite thing about GPU reviews on this site, is how many generations back the comparison includes. Most of the other mainstream sites would never benchmark a GTX 460 against a 960. They'd go...

    XP was supported for 13 years. Doesn't matter when Vista was released. People who had XP were perfectly happy with XP, and there were quite a large number of XP users in the world as of last year...

    Ignoring reality doesn't make for a very compelling argument. The "long dry spell" that was XP was 13 years long, a significant period of time, not something you can simply "ignore" for the sake of...

    The good news in the revenue department, is that AMD owns all 3 latest generation gaming consoles. Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U are all powered by an AMD APU. I'm not a video gamer, but...

    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.

    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.

    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...
