Augustus' Ultimate Linux Workstation: Part III

Filed under
Linux

At long last, I bring you the completion of my Ultimate Linux Workstation series. While this final article is overdue, I believe the results will speak for themselves. In this article, I'll go over some of the components that went into the system and show you what the completed system looks like. I'll review the highlights of the system and then show you the benchmarks that my Ultimate Linux Workstation produces in comparison to a sub-$2,000 budget alternative. In the conclusion, I'll provide thoughts on the system now that it's completed and been in use for a while. I'll talk about what worked and what I would possibly change in the future. If you missed part I or part II, you may want to read those first to catch up.

Full Story.
