I have a more recent linux box. Just trying to be a little more environment friendly. Let's say that I could give it to a needy friend. What do you think? :wink:
Evan - 20 Jul 2017, 23:38
False economy , a $30 Raspberry would be more environment friendly with watts per processing than 20 year old gear plus Raspberry will decode HD media with less electricty while old gear will just stutter and maybe not even play it at all.

Pointless giving a needy friend something that doesn't even meet the basic requirements of a fully loaded webpage with x264 decoding , just give him a $30 amazon voucher and take the old gear to a recycling refuse. :wink:
Evan - 20 Jul 2017, 23:46
But hey ho , We all have different ideas as some people still happily run old 32 bit gear rather than using the money they would save on electricty buying a bottom of the range 64 bit CPU that would run circles around the 32 bit.

Infact i'll take back the $30 Raspberry considering you can now get secondhand Chromebook with a LED backlit screen for $50.
