Jeff Atwood (aka codinghorror) Shares 2016 HTPC Config
I like it when people share their HTPC configs. It’s nice to get an idea of what they’re doing, and why. Jeff is a proficient blogger, and we’ve shared similar thought process in the past so I am always quick to have a look when he updates his setup.
IMO, his update is solid – but I find the I/O choices to be a bit odd. Especially, opting for a standard SATA SSD instead of a modern interface. Either way, have a look and if you have any thoughts, I’d love to hear them.
I’ve loved many computers in my life, but the HTPC has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the only always-on workhorse computer in our house, it is utterly silent, totally reliable, sips power, and it’s at the center of our home entertainment, networking, storage, and gaming. This handy box does it all, 24/7.
