You know what to do.
All that memory and can’t even fit the whole screen in frame
That load average though…
At the last job we had some decent xeon workstations that I got to run bare metal linux on, and a laptop for everything else. The new place is all about laptops so I not only have to lug around a 17" beast but had to virtualize.
Pfft. Workstations. That ain’t pimpin. Now here’s some pimped up Linux at work:
[email protected], SSD Bootdisk, running a whole lotta cameras, servos, steppers, INDI server, etc.
Is that a “point and shoot” camera?
I know how much those cost. No thanks.
Been there and done that. My first linux box was a Dell 286 with an (at the time) lordly 100MB scsi drive, running YGGDrasil Linux (think it was the .74 kernel). That machine ended up hosting some of the first websites in the US, as I had unfettered access to a full DS3 connection. My Web Development environment was Pico. It genuinely looked like what it was - a pile of scavenged computer parts. Most of the websites are still online, all virtualized and stuff.
It was a good time to be a geek.
