TOPIC: Hardware for Linux
It used to be challenging to buy hardare to run Linux. 21 years of
Linux and hardware history have created a few new challenges but
mostly improvements on the whole. With a few handy tricks and
a few colourful lessons about hardware past and present, you can
enjoy success, good performance, and long-term satisfaction in your
choice of computing hardawre. Our speaker will address the
traditional server, workstation, and laptop markets but also some
of the intriguing areas for use in 'embedded' computing such
as DVRs and wireless gateways. (If you elect to use our speaker's
guidelines to avoid suckage outside of Linux, we won't tell.)
ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

administrator and member of SVLUG's Web Team, who also runs nearby
Linux user group CABAL (http://linuxmafia.com/cabal/), meeting at
his and his wife's house in West Menlo Park, and has been fooling
with various Unices since the 1980s. Having formerly been a technical
employee at several Linux firms (Linuxcare, VA Linux Systems, and

not his fault and he has an alibi.
