I flinched when Patrick said "we had some disk corruption, and I really don't know why". The Pis are also no stranger to shorn writes. That is why x86 still rules the world, because of its decades of work on the software stack and dozens of iterations in chip and system design. Can't fake those 40 years.

Very few people are touching the topic of small SBCs vs traditional servers. Loved it.

You should do more collaborations like this.
The other big one, that I think folks will find surprising is that Arm is not more efficient than x86 in this.

Jeff is a super nice guy. The day before I recorded something with Ian Cutress (formerly Anandtech) in the studio for his channel.
