    Re: Switch from Windows 8 to Linux. Am I alone?

    I switched when I got fed up with where I saw Microsoft going with Windows 7 (i.e. I switched in 2012). I should have switched earlier, but I was lazy. I had previously used Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04.

    Re: Steam-Powered Mini-PC (CES Preview)

    It runs Linux (likely Ubuntu-based) and is rumoured to ship with Half-Life 3.

    This thing is going to kill all the other consoles. And Steam games don't go "out of date" (except when you switch...

    Re: LAN on a town?

    As the others said: good, cheap, fast. Choose two.

    I don't know of any network topology you can do in that time-frame. Wireless won't work unless it's a mesh network, because you'd basically need...
