    oops. That should be "harder", not "easier". I don't know what I was thinking.

    Slashdot is so fucking useless. They can't even figure out how to implement an "edit your post" feature.

    You're so fucking useless. You can't even figure out how to implement a "proofread your goddamned post" and "the preview button is there for a reason" feature.

    The UEC combination has gotten decent ratings if you want to put your anti-Canonical prejudices aside. Dell hardware ain't all that bad these days.... the combo is a damn sight cheaper than buying a fat HP box with VMware on it..... and you get to reuse some of your code on AWS.

    Yes, there are clean, virginal, can-wear-white-at-the-wedding implementations, too. This one uses kvm, if memory serves, and beats threading the whole thing together yourself.

    If you were seriously in the enterprise you'd know that the added cost of a HP over a Dell is well justified. When you need to keep things running on this level there is no time to pinch pennies.

    HP may be the fair to midrange PC on the Best Buy shelf but in the enterprise it kicks the crap out of anyone else. This includes their business desktops.
