    These are 23" but have a lot of pixels for the money:
    Dell SP2309W
    Acer B233HU bmidhz

    Both are 2048x1152 and under $250.

    Hard to go wrong there.

    For regular desktop users, yes.


    There are exceptions, but most of those people already know they will benefit from 64-bit.
    ie heavy MySQL users, coders who compile all the time, etc.

    Lol at trying to drag me into the vertical scaling.

    SSI != hardware

    What's the largest number of sockets you can get in one single Linux machine? SSI doesn't count as CPUs,...

    And no, the SSI is a layer that runs on top of an existing Linux kernel on a smaller machine.
    So there are not even any 1024 socket machines. The Altix 4700 is a networked collection of dual socket...

    When a $300 Walmart desktop comes with >32 CPUs or 6GB+ of RAM, I will change my recommendation. For now I just tell people to do 32-bit PAE.
    Cling until the bitter end!

    I'll try my best impersonation of you: But you can't get x86 or SPARC hardware with more than 256 sockets. This means Linux doesn't scale well! :P

    Uh what are you smoking? One UltraSPARC T3 will be 128 CPUs by itself.
    You can already boot an M9K with all 512 cores in one domain, in fact, somebody filed a bug on a problem exacerbated by that...

    And Solaris does >144 CPUs right now, you can configure an F25K to boot one domain with all 144 CPUs.

    Yeah, it scales right up until the point where you want to hotplug CPUs.

    So you're saying an SGI supercomputer with 1024 CPUs is not a big box?
