    replying to myself, I learnt what the specific requirement is. The motherboard and BIOS need to support I/O adressing mapped over 4GB (which feels weird and obscure. I guess systems with support for...

    I think not. It should use SSE, AVX which are not available on this Xeon Phi.

    There will soon be ARMv8 server chips with 16 cores and more, too. Possibly made of several ~quad core systems isolated but all on a very fast on-die back bone.
    If you master a KNC Xeon Phi you...

    I thought it should run in any mediocre PC, e.g. in my current one I'd put it on the PCIe 16x slot, use an old PCI graphics card (I've used it before, good for browsing and video playback..)
    Screw a...

    The next one will be much more PC-like : cores based on Atom Baytrail architecture, vector instruction set from Skylake, able to work fully on his own (not a card that needs a master CPU anymore). It...

    On a system with 64bit CPU and 2GB RAM I'll tend to install a 32bit OS, because I like that Firefox can't use more than 2GB.
    Besides, 10 to 15 year old PCs can still be useful and we need another OS...

    MATE is important as a desktop environment, it's not 3D-accelerated so it's more reliable, lighter and works on any random hardware. It is also very good, the closest to still being able to use...

    This is the biggest problem with it and it's strange that it's not so much mentioned in comments or in all places of all, the Phoronix story. The Xeon Phi card on sale is deprecated.

    It's dead, no...

    If you want to run such slow and cheap storage nothing stops you from using a USB flash drive as your main storage on that ECS board (or any PC motherboard able to boot from USB)
    Or boot from the...

    It sucsk for people on Ubuntu 12.04 or derivates, debian stable and the like, the easy way to get the newer graphics drivers is to upgrade/replace the whole OS. Oh, there are a combined Xorg/kernel...

    To me it's certain that AMD dropped support to save money and developer/engineer resources, or rather shift them to the newer cards. What was dropped at once was the Radeon 2000, 3000 and 4000 series...

    Are you serious?, I thought closed drivers had triple the framerate in some cases. Catalysts are often said to have crap performance in 3D accelerated desktops (Gnome 3, Cinnamon etc.) though. So I...

    I think I was surveyed twice, on Windows long ago and on Linux not long after the launch.
    Steam has been doing these surveys for very long. A survey would tend to mean you're taking a sample, the...

    Maybe what's needed is a dual boot between linux and linux, lol. So a stable installation can be kept for work etc. and an Arch one to try and get framerate and game stability.

    Anyway, regarding...

    Android uses only the linux kernel and doesn't give a shit about everything else.
    It's really totally unrelated to all the linux distros like debian, slackware, fedora etc.
    It's like complaining...

    I have a feeling you're trolling a bit by comparing Ubuntu with OpenBSD. Why not NetBSD, Haiku, the HURD while you're at it?
    I liked using Ubuntu, even though I don't use Gnome 3 or Unity. It's what...

    Alright, I must have read some part of your post too quickly, thus Gnome 3 Wayland requires systemd but Wayland itself doesn't.

    In the near future I'll be interested in LXDE-Qt, which may end up...
