Advice on building a Linux box

,----[ Quote ]
| I get a lot of questions on Linux hardware: 
| âWhatâs the best piece of hardware X for 
| Linux?â âShould I go route A since Iâm using 
| Linux?â Of course not everyone builds their 
| own computer. But there are a fair number of 
| us out there that would rather keep as much 
| control over the selection of their machines 
| components as they can. And there is 
| something to be said about hand-picking your 
| components. But which video card? Which sound 
| card? Which networking card? Processor? 
| Motherboard? Will it all work with Linux? You 
| know it will work with Windowsâbut with Linux 
| there can be some gray area.


Virtualized Supercomputer Operating System

| New work on the Sandia National Laboratories 
| Red Storm supercomputer â the 17th fastest in 
| the world â is helping to make supercomputers 
| more accessible. Sandia researchers, working 
| hand in hand with researchers from 
| Northwestern University and the University of 
| New Mexico, socialized 4,096 of Red Storm's 
| total 12,960 computer nodes into accepting a 
| virtual external operating system â a leap of 
| at least two orders of magnitude over 
| previous such efforts. 



Building Dream Machines, Studio PC and Media Server

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux has a number of great media servers,
| and this will be new territory for me
| because I haven't paid much attention to
| the small, quiet form-factor boxes people
| like to use for these. XMBC, GeexBox, and
| Elisa all look interesting. I have dreams
| of stuffing a big hard drive full of music
| in nice high-quality FLAC format, and
| movies galore at my fingertips.


Build it Yourself Linux Super-Workstation Part 2

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that we have the basic system up and running, it's easy to see that it will be
| a screamer. The combination of the latest AMD processor and 8GB of memory will
| make it the perfect platform to test out all the current virtualization
| options. With the hardware up and running the rest should be easy.
