Which hypervisor – Proxmox vs TrueNAS Scale – delivers better virtual machine performance when compared with multiple VM core configurations in benchmark tests on identical systems? Do you think you can predict the results?
In this latest installment in what has become an ongoing quest to find inexpensive Raspberry Pi alternatives I address the question, “Do inexpensive i3 desktops make good homelab systems in 2022?” Specifically, we’re looking at systems featuring chips from Intel’s 6th gen and 4th gen lineups – the i3-6100T, i3-4160 and i3-4160T.
Ultimately, only you will know what your project’s needs are when choosing a compute device. However, if your use case for the Raspberry Pi is running homelab or computational tasks, or even using it as a desktop computer, and you don’t require any of the unique characteristics of the Pi, then you’re probably better off buying an inexpensive used mini PC when comparing a mini PC vs Raspberry Pi.
Google, Facebook, Amazon and others do everything they can to track what you read, watch, and do online. A growing number of people online are taking their online privacy a step further by actively reducing the amount of information that is gathered about us by the websites and platforms that we visit. Pi-hole is an essential tool used by those who wish to better protect their online privacy.
