Naaaaa! bPlan are not nerds or megalomaniac. But what you said is right that theyll go for the Industry.
There are several companies breaking away silently from the Wintel market, and they will need
a mobo that is reliable and bulletproof compatible and.. STABLE!
And so what to use as HW for Linux?
Most x86 mobos have compatibility issues or you have that ugly "Winsucks approved" label on them.
Plus, you're always in danger with a fan dying, roasting your mobo and server, too.
So there bplan might find the market between IBM Heracles 8/4 G4 server mobo and a numb terminal.
