Woo Hoo! Everyone has gone all techie around here!
I would have though that everyone wants to just see pretty pictures and not care how many Ghz and RAM or power you have to use. Isn't that one of the main reasons to switch to Apple for the pretty interface? Isn't that the reason to get Vista?
I do like the Cube desktop concept, however I would like to boot virtualized OS's into each side. That gives me an idea. Consolidating a couple of MS Windows boxes into one.
MS Windows still beats the crap out of Linux on ram consumption on its UI particularly if you have multiple displays.
Linux X Windows + UI = RAM hog. which is why I don't have X Windows installed on anything.
I am migrating right now a Sun box from NetBSD to Solaris 10 so I can use the amazing ZFS. Bye bye hardware raid controllers.
Warning Sales Pitch Ahead: If anyone is looking for some very small servers, I have 10 x Netra 105 and T1 in stock 512MB/1G, 2 or 6 FE ports. Can use as a Firewall/Switch when configured with 6FE ports. They are 1U and very shallow and use less than 100W of power. Starting at HK$1900.
