Thanks, Dude! (again, no pun intended) I had trouble getting Vanilla to boot last time, but we'll see if a clean install on a freshly LLF'd drive gets me anywhere.

Ubuntu is good for those new to Linux.

I have an LS350 running in my media rig, and it's always right at 12.01 on the +12v. Plus the lifetime warranty. >.>

It really depends on the wattage you are requiring as to what would be a better choice, especially since they are differently priced. You're adding another aspect to your comparison that puts it on a whole 'nother plane.

I think I did a good job on my cable management. Well, except for the part under the HDD.

I finally got the computers back from the police. Apparently the lawyer did some things to get it back because the police had no intentions of giving them back. However this is the condition I received my old server back in
