Augustus' Ultimate Linux Workstation

Filed under
Hardware

I think one of the best ways to tell people what the best components are, is to show them the system you would build if money was almost no object. That's where this article comes in. This is my story of building my ultimate Linux box.

In Part 1, I give you a good idea of which components work well with Linux and hopefully aid you in your purchasing decisions.

In Part 2, I will take you through some of the special construction that had to be done to accommodate some of the special hardware I selected. Although I will be commenting on what was done, much of this article will be a pictorial.
