My Past and Present PCs

Before

I think it says a lot about the developer what sort of PC he/she has. Back when I was in my early 20 I had several:

  • Linux (Fedora) Box – running exclusively traffic shaping (sometimes uptime of that box exceeded 1 year!). The actual script for traffic shaping took a lot of time and effort to write
  • Windows Server – used as a DNS server and a POP3/SMTP server
  • Windows Server with RAID5 – for storing all important data
  • Windows Media Center – primarily for recording programs
  • Main PC – Extreme CPU with water cooling, 4 GB Ram – back in those days it was a monster

MyRig

These days I only have 2:

  • Samsung Ativ Book 9 – 256 SSD, 8GB of RAM, have to say one of the best notebooks
  • Main PC – Intel Extreme Edition CPU with 6 cores (2 logical for each core, so 12 in total), 64GB of RAM, OCZ SSD that goes directly into your motherboard, 2 Intel SSD, 1 x 2TB Hybrid HDD, 7 x 1 GB HDDs – that I need for running virtual machines.
