    • Really? is that so? I never inquired about their RAID HDD arrays.

      Ubuntu 10.04 LTS out of box installation was eating more than 170mb of RAM, created support ticket but at the end I was told to use CentOS instead. Unacceptable so I cancelled today.

  1. the LEB openzv 15$/year unixbench:
