    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    You really don't have to solder this I did it with a keystone jack (home depot if necessary) and I didn't even punch the cables in. I literally just punched them in with a small piece of plastic. A junk USB mini cable to sacrifice and a keystone. Super simple you'll be amazed.

    PFsense on Hyper-V

    Please elaborate what hardware your referring to. This seems completely backwards. Usually no support on Microsoft and works fine on esxi/linux "Server 2016 friendly, dropped hardware support in ESXi and finicky in ProxMox."

    Boot Esxi 7.0 on supermicro x10 NVME m.2

    Local datastore is also a keyword here. Major reason not to do it this way.

    Boot Esxi 7.0 on supermicro x10 NVME m.2

    Of course you can however why would you boot off your fastest media? Remember you burn the boot device in esxi and are prevented from utilizing it as a datastore later. So the general use case is to boot off a satadom or USB and save the m.2 for datastore media.

    I believe you flash the bmc through the bios. Hook up a vga monitor can you get into bios with local keyboard and video?

    Windows 11, why, why now, and what matters?

    Maybe this will refresh your memory on Microsoft tpm and secure boot. Oops - Microsoft opens Secure Boot by mistake, showing everyone why master keys are a bad idea.

    Windows 11, why, why now, and what matters?

    "its still the same, just with stuff removed, so its more "secure" and different." New paint does not equal secure. Instead of fixing the problems in the frame and the suspension. Let's just paint it. Our beta testers (customers) will do the security fuzzing for us. This is standard Microsoft...

    Windows 11, why, why now, and what matters?

    "and I'm impressed at how much effort the developers put in for such an early and new release." People paint cars all the time. Imagine if car company x comes to your house, paints your car, locks you out of it, and sells it to you again to drive for another 3 years. Rinse and repeat. This...

    Depends. What do you expect from your pfsense experience? Do you want to run snort or some sort of intrusion detection system? Maybe some surricata with some nice grafana dashboards? This box will run circles around all that plus maybe you want to run say opensense for remote vpn access to your...
