The idea of using a simple, low-profile, low-performance, but also low-cost, low-power consumption and low-maintainance non-mainstream platforms as servers is absolutely nothing new. I have a great fondness for the very idea of using Atom CPUs as servers, and there are already commercial solutions with such a setup available out there. As soon as I can justify using it in a project, I will :)
But for now, I have an Atom-based netbook and I tried seeing what exactly can I expect from such a system in terms of performance.
Following Murray’s suggestion to use feedburner to track Planet FreeBSD subscribers, I’ve created feeds and added badges to Planet FreeBSD frontpages. So far it still shows 0 subscribers but I’ve done the necessary tweaking to point the rss/atom feeds to the new one. I hope the readers will be smart enough to notice the rss to atom change. We’ll see how it works out.
I’ve also removed the rss10/opml/foaf feeds as they seem to be mostly requested by crawlers. If you’re using it and can give a reasonable reason why you can’t use atom, drop me an email.
