Oh, speaking of which the main advantage I've seen in the newisys is
the remote managability. You can ssh to the management interface, check
temperatures, turn the machine on/off, and other related functionality.
Alas, as far as I can tell the passthru for the management interface
(it has 2 ethernet ports for the management) isn't usable in any sane way.
Unless you want to do something like:
turn node off
The idea of not requiring a masterswitch+ for power management, a
cyclades or similar for serial management, or a switch for a seperate
management network can be attractive. Not that other motherboards
don't have management options.
