Upside to VNC being that you don't kick the user off, which RDP does.

comment Will I see performance benefits from an SSD in my laptop?
The results of that Tomshardware article are heavily disputed, or at least his conclusion is. They mustered up enough humility to publish a partial retraction afterwards, though I still suspect MobileMark07 isn't indicative of real world usage and tends to favor spinning disks in power benchmarks.

comment Is it ethical to spoof registration forms on websites?
@johannes, is your argument "It's ethical to lie when they are incompetent"? Fine by me if we want to keep giving false info to websites, but we can't rationalize it as ethical.

comment How to build a quiet computer from scratch?
+1. Jeff was active at the SPCR forums as "wumpus" silentpcreview.com/forums which was probably the source of the info from that post. Mike Chin & Co are fanatics about quiet.
