This is more of an opinion question, but what type of CPU would you buy to
run a OpenBSD workstation.
Ugh, this is horribly OT
This brings up a question I've had for a while: is it really OT? Or,
to put it differently, is there a more appropriate forum for
questions regarding hardware on which to run OpenBSD? With all due
respect to Mr. Goren, STFA doesn't work if these threads don't come
up frequently: the hardware just changes too fast & that great
Cheapotron XL-99 10/100 card with the 21143 chip from 2 months ago
may be shipping under the same name with a Realtek 8009 Lite chip now.
I have a client who keeps saying they're going to buy a server any
day now. They've been on the verge of purchasing it for 6 months now
& since the original quote, processors have gotten faster, become
unsupported by the motherboard I spec'ed, & become supported again.
The motherboard in question is an MSI K7 Master. I'm going to have to
spec a newer model if they don't buy soon & I'm likely to ask for
suggestions here if I don't know of a better place to ask.
