As per title, is post is born out of idle curiosity. I'm not looking for "Because it's the best!!!111!" responses - more wondering what that moment was that made you think "Wait...I can do that?" and not look back.
FWIW - mine was when I'd spent hours trying to get Windows XP installed on a laptop with no optical drive back in ~05 or so. Basically had to install onto the laptop hard drive using an IDE>mobile-PATA adapter and move the disk back in after. Windows gave me umpteen BSODs, Ubuntu, however, Just WorkedTM. To be fair I then had to do battle with ndiswrapper, but all in all it was a much better experience.

I'm curious about the purpose of adding a static route is? I was messing around with some tracerouting and noticed a route going to sfmix.org, upon further investigation it looks like a peering network, and on the site it has a "Route Server" page with IPs to add 'static route' to. I'm just curious about what this is, and if I could benefit from adding a static route on my home linux server to sfmix.org's route server. this might sound stupid but i'm pretty clueless when it comes to advanced networking. please let me know! thx!submitted by /u/countchocula360

Linux never sleeps. Linus Torvalds is already hard at work pulling together changes for the next version of the kernel (4.11). But with Linux 4.10 now out, three groups of changes are worth paying close attention to because they improve performance and enable feature sets that weren’t possible before on Linux.
Here’s a rundown of those changes to 4.10 and what they likely will mean for you, your cloud providers, and your Linux applications.
VIA unveiled an SODIMM-style COM based on its Cortex-A9 WM8850 SoC, with 512MB RAM and 8GB eMMC, plus Ethernet, CSI, graphics, USB, and serial ports.
The 68.6 x 43mm “SOM-6X50” computer-on-module appears to be VIA’s second-ever ARM COM. Back in Sept. 2015, the company released a 70 x 70mm Qseven form factor QSM-8Q60 COM, based on a 1GHz NXP DualLite SoC.
