35Re: Great idea, have NSLU2, just ordered Linkstation 160 for $80 (after rebate)
- Sep 27, 2004I just ordered a LinkStation 120 from newegg after wrestling with the
The main reason I chose it was the larger amount of RAM (64 MB vs
32MB, I think). I plan to run a Source Code Control system on it and
32MB seemed a bit small. Maybe a small webserver too...
The LinkStation also appears to be a little easier to get telnet and
root access on (might not be much harder on NSLU2 now). Plus the
yellowdog binary RPMs covers a lot of the utils that I would need.
The drawbacks are that Linksys is a much bigger name in the business
than Buffalo. The NSLU2 has much bigger english-language following
right now. I hope the Linkstation will catch up.
