    Default Intel NUC

    So...today, I had the opportunity to assemble and load Linux Mint on a Intel NUC D34010WYK like this for work.

    I popped 16GB of DDR3 1600 in it (GSKILL), and a Mushkin 120GB SSD (like this) into it.

    Then, I installed Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca XFCE from a Thumb drive, which took something like 10 minutes (at most), and rebooted.

    Thinking "it's linux" and expecting it to take a few seconds I turned away to do something else. Turned back, and it was booted, at the desktop, ready to use.

    Thinking "Hunh?", I clicked on the shutdown option and powered it off. Waited a sec, and powered it back on. 10 seconds to the desktop (probably less).

    So. $65 for the SSD, $104 for the RAM, and $268 for the PC. Mint, Free. Spare Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor...(TV?) Free. Total cost: $437

    This model doesn't have WiFi or Bluetooth, but it does have 4! USB 3.0 Ports, one Mini-HDMI port, 1 Display Port (Mini I think), audio and a remote control. It also has MSATA, and MPCIE (for WiFi).

    Runs 1080P HD video well, and seems to load LibreOffice faster than my desktop.

    Water Cooling Possibilities? Well, no. Overclocking? Meh. Noise? Well, I can hear it...not as silent as I expected...

    But damn, now I want 10.

    LOL

    i'm an extreme fan of linux distros, but the security of them scares me

    i defiantly want more education on how to make them more secure, and less hackable

    even with that the foremost topic from me on the table
    i still say to boycott windows and go all linux
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    I have a recommend for you if you like Linux and SPEED

    It is not designed to be fully installed rather as a complete os on a stick which leaves no footprint once removed

    One can however install it even though the "rules and methods" are shall we say "alternative"

    Fatdog64 is a Puppy derivative so once loaded it runs entirely in memory. You can use a bit more ram, still under 1GB, and run it uncompressed in memory for lightning speed.

    If you have some spare time to learn its foibles you will find it is an absolute stonker..... Puppy but 64bit

    Fatdog64 Linux

    I've never used Fatdog 64 (or any Puppy derivative), but a nicely configured distro is amazing to behold. That i3 is Nowhere near as fast as my i7, it has half the ram, and 1/10th of the disk space, but it SCREAMS. I imagine FatDog would likely fully boot before the LCD warmed up!

    Calemus, by default, I suppose Linux is no more secure than Windows, but the nice thing about it is how much you're in control. Microsoft just does whatever the hell it feels like, and a lot of it is completely OUT of your control...example...how many times have you logged in as Administrator, tried to do something and been told you don't have the permissions to do that? WTF? Really? On linux, once I switch to Root, I'm my PC's god. Of course if I go slinging lightning bolts around with Vast ignorance, I can certainly blow things up like a god too!

    On top of that, with a little bit of research, you can certainly make it crazy secure.

    The best part about it for me, is what I don't need. I don't need 50 utilities at boot time to do random things on my computer. That stupid tray and all the crap that started in it on Windows drove me crazy. I don't have to worry about applications installing themselves in my System Directories. I don't have a registry, nor the need to edit arcane "keys" to do silly **** in my OS. Almost all of the applications I use on my machine are both free and open source. Mint Update just works, and almost NEVER requires me to reboot my PC. It's fast, stable, and full of new things to learn.

    Meh, I sound like a Zealot. In truth, I use windows on my Ultrabooks, and work computers (generally). I suffer Windows on machines because the best games run on Windows. I don't mind Windows 7, and can even remember liking it a lot. Windows 8.x drives me nuts, and I have to install utilities to make it more like 7 when I use it. I hold out _some_ hope for Windows 10, but I'm not optimistic.

    I do sometimes miss the ease with which you can do some things on Windows, although Network file systems are NOT one of those things. SunOS 4.1 in 1993 handled network file systems invisibly to the user, and Windows STILL can't handle them as elegantly.

    I really do sound like a Zealot. I'm sorry, I'll shut up now.

    Harlot. I like that. Yup. That's it, I'm a Linux Harlot.
