comment If RAM is cheap, why don't we load everything to RAM and run it from there?
I used to work on a Toshiba HX-20. That's a Z80 computer with MSX BASIC interpreter, and had 32KiB of RAM + 32KiB of RAMDISK. So we were using ramdisks more than 20 years ago :) Also, there was the RAMDISK utility for MS-DOS and some people did set up AUTOEXEC.BAT to copy some stuff there at every boot.

comment Is there a way to get processor details without using information from bios?
No, the kernel probes those informations directly from the hardware at startup time. Additional details can sometimes be found in the first lines of dmesg output.

comment How to quickly test sending HTML+embedded images for email?
Didn't know about the powershell thingie, thanks for pointing that out. Adapting a script won't be a problem, getting Visual Studio on the system would have been.

comment Choice of an OS for a home ZFS NAS
It will be slow but acceptable for some use cases, and some features will not be available at all (eg. forget ZFS deduplication with less than 4GB of ram only for ZFS on a 64bit system). Comments on SU are not for follow-up questions so I suggest that you go and RTFM some of the things you're talking about before using them.

comment How to quickly test sending HTML+embedded images for email?
Doesn't that need Visual Studio or something like that installed on the system? I'm looking for something useable, not for source code to write apps...

comment Choice of an OS for a home ZFS NAS
I don't understand "FreeNAS", "plugin" and "Virtualbox" in the same sentence, sorry. FreeNAS installs just fine under VirtualBox, but I think you already know that, but you shouldn't install a NAS inside a virtualized system unless you have plenty of hardware resources (hint: you don't). You shouldn't be installing VMs inside a FreeNAS (or any other NAS) system. You also shouldn't be using Virtualbox on any server-style or otherwise non-desktop system. Last but not least, you shouldn't be using those 2GB of ram for anything other than the NAS... and forget serious ZFS with only 2GBs.

comment Using an HD monitor as a TV for wii/ps3
@omgzor you shouldn't ask questions in comments. And you don't connect a game console to a pc graphics card. You connect a console or a pc graphics card to a monitor / tv / projector / etc.
