What does the team use

This is a fun post.  We have had some people ask me, what systems does the Black Lab Linux development team use.  So I asked and here is what the Black Lab Linux development team uses to get the job done.

Roberto Dohnert

I have three systems and 2 laptops I use, while I have several systems, these are the systems I use the most

Main Developer System is a system I just picked up, Dell PowerEdge T320 which has 8 intel Xeon cores, 32 gb of RAM and 3 internal 1 tb hard drives, and two external 1 tb USB hard drives, this runs Black Lab Linux 4.3 + Pro Desktop Extensions Pak and some server components installed.  This machine runs 8 VM's through Virtual Box, these include.  Windows 7, Ubuntu 13.10, Linux Mint 16, IcAROS, Red Hat EL 6.5, Black Lab Linux Core, Black Lab Linux Embedded, Debian Linux 7

My daily desktop that I use just for getting stuff done, IRC, e-mail, posting to the web and just a little dev work is a Black Lab VR64 Desktop with 8 gb of RAM, 500 gb of Hard Drive space and runs Black Lab Linux 4.2 + Pro Desktop Extensions Pak

Third desktop is the Black Lab PowerStation, 16gb of RAM, 2 2tb hard drives and Black Lab Linux 4.3.  This is my test machine.  This is where I do much of my testing of new stuff.

My two laptops.  One Acer and one Lenovo Thinkpad both run Black Lab Linux 4.2


iMac 27 inch dual boot OS X and Black Lab Linux 4.2.  He also runs a MacBook Pro with Black Lab Linux 4.2 as the solo OS.
