looking at the survey (hardware)
Crucial: This issue is one of the most important things I consider in
evaluating a computer system
very important: This issue is very important to me in evaluating a computer
important: This issue is important, but I am willing to compromise for more
relevant: I consider this issue when I evaluate a computer system, when all
else appears equal
unimportant: This issue is not relevant for/to me
- Plug-and-Play (PnP) support in hardware
- Support for USB
- Support for FireWire
unimportant, i guess. never heard of it.
- Multi-processor support (the computer can use multiple CPUs at once)
Wait a minute -- how did this question end up in a hardware section? The
original intent of it was "how important is it for Linux to support SMP?"
Now it's asking about motherboard firmware/bios smp support? This isn't
asking what I originally wanted.
- Speed of graphics rendering
important. it should be fast, but it's not like i play quake or anything.
- Overall speed of machine
crucial. i spend way too much time with my machines to accept anything
