LTT Hardware Survey

I think it would be pretty cool if we did a hardware survey so we could find the "average LTT viewers PC". Maybe if we take it far enough, Linus or someone from the staff could build it.

It would be interesting to do a super-poll of sorts. I tried to do one myself in the past, but due to forum poll limits and to keep it sane, I had to limit the options.

128Gb SSD + 2Tb 7200 RPM HDD

...and here's my dream PC, each part was chosen for Linux compatibility and privacy. I'm a long way from actually getting it, and by then it'll be like using a Pentium 4 nowadays. Still a work in progress, and open to suggestions that help meet the goal for it. Realistically, it'll never get built though, but I can dream.

Well that would be nice and it's not hard to probe hardware, problem is imagine you have members with multiple computers how would you average that.

I think Linus should build my one of or both of my old favorite home builds I had about 20 years ago. 

 

AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1333 MHz

386 MB RAM

ATi Radeon 8500

 

AMD Athlon XP 2500+

Hercules ATi Radeon 9600 Pro

They have kinda done one with Steam VR survey. And have previously done yearly for Amazon affiliate purchases. For bigger viewer survey, just using forums gives kinda small sample.

The tricky thing about it would be handling multiple devices. I have various computers and use them interchangeably so I wouldn't say I really have a main PC.

That's what the Amazon affiliate videos are. Doing anything more than that would require much more than just creating forms to be filled.
