Re: WTF is GiffGaff
@Sir Wiggum - since the recent price change and cap of the £10 goodybag to 1GB data, you're free to tether on that.
Tethering is still not allowed on the £12.50 unlimited goodybag though.
To the death?
I like the idea of duel-booting - let battle commence!
Have a break, have a kit kat....
take a moment guys, this slanging match is starting to wear thin even if it does give us some laughs at times.
Personally, I don't see AIX dying, POWER will continue to grow until there is no longer any business requirement for it, Nehalem is proving to be quite-a-lot-of-what-was-claimed-it-would-be, Linux is showing its strength on the commodity x86 platform and lastly, when did anyone ever say anything other than the "next blah-blah-blah will be the BIGGEST STEP EVER"?
@the problem i've noticed
Lots of us have the same problem - get a postal voting form.
@Matt Bryant - It isn't...
non, c'est ' '...n'est-ce pas...'
I'm guessing that if your company is big enough to be making decisions between POWER and Nehalem, you're probably big enough to accommodate both.
No-one seems to have mentioned the fact that aside from the benchmarks and raw-power comparisions that are thrown about, it's horses for courses.
Some apps need the processing scalability of POWER, some don't and x86-based Nehalem-EX-enhanced is a good way to go if that's the case.
Just understand the pros/cons of each and make a decision (pros/cons obviously includes cost).
