Ok, thanks for your thoughts Vincent. I continue to respectfully
disagree, and believe raspberry pi's and similarly super-cheap hardware
will play an increasingly prominent role in highschool and collegiate
classrooms teaching concepts on HPC, regardless of their ability or
inability to out-churn the beefy home desktop. I guess we'll have to
wait and see.
And next time I need to know about the mentality of 99.99% of the people
on the planet, I'll make sure to query you, the fount of normality. :D
