  1. Does anyone want to re-build this thing and try Ubuntu on it? If so, my fees will be extraordinarily reasonable; just provide the hardware, some food and coffee, and a well-ventilated room for a day or so.

    Oh, and a trampoline.

  2. Wow, that’s a lot of hard drives…

    Those are SSDs – solid state drives. They cost a lot more than hard drives.

    Ans, they do not have as high of capacity as conventional drives although this is changing. Hence all the drives, which can actually make seek/write times faster, due to using RAID. One wonders what type / how many RAID SATA (I assume not SAS) controllers are in that rig.
