What is your preference when it come to architecture?
Recently, I've been able to afford used machines from Craig's list and ebay for a fraction of the original cost. I have also been using- In the following order for amount of exposure- Free, Open, and Net BSDS for five to six years.
Okay, I'm dragging it on, apologies.
Here goes, recent experience has shown me that RISC architectures perform better then the standard i386/amd64. OS support seems to be the only downfall I see, with such being due to my not looking hard enough- or knowing where to look- for a solution.
No, I am not a programmer, or com,puter science student. I have no degree in electronics and hold no such certification of that sort or any other. Come to think of it, I'm probably one of the worst examples to follow in the BSD- and Linux- communities. However, I can judge performance based on workload, OS, applications, and compiling along with response.
Alright, I've made a pompous arse of myself; I'll go hide now.
