Hehe, that's a great read, thanks for that.
I'll believe Alberto's take over Gilbert's... :-)
I'm glad Linus put pen to paper (bits to the ether?) on this as it will
make it a lot easier to convince Linux/FLOSS people to aim for ECC on
their boxes. Most will agree that Linus is a Really Smart Guy(TM) and
is generally pretty honest/open. He promotes ECC. That will be good
enough for many people!
I agree 100% with everything Linus says, especially about the history,
and Intel's dumb (intentional) moves. I've said it all for years.
I'm also glad to see Linus continues his completely non-PC rant-style
approach to communication. Wowza!
P.S. A lot of the other names on the thread aren't lightweights either.
Go AMD! Go ECC!

of a comparable Intel "workstation" with ECC and full x16 slot
