    Every time I see him climbing over the table to get to the USB cards, I keep thinking he's going to fall and then, plot twist: Linus drops himself. Of course, I know this was over a year ago and it didn't happen, but still.

    In Canadian winters where the humidity gets down to desert levels, grounding is critically important, 10k volt static shocks off simple doorknobs are the norm.

    Yep. Something a lot of bosses seems to miss. The theory might sound good, but it never guarantees it'll survive practical application :P

    This is equivalent to gg to a concert. This guy is so god dam good it that he can make a live show and explain why everything(mostly) happen. Like how a singer is able to be pitch perfect for every live concert.

    Linus can you please get a Rat's Tail? Can someone put a bet in the office and make Linus lose so he has to have a Rat's Tail? 😂😂😂

    you could try citrix virtual desktop(xendestop) with GPU passthrough to the virtual maschine and you can also passthrough USB direct from the client pc to the virtual maschine :) maybe try the nvidia tesla card with a server :)

    I know this is super late, but I don't understand why Linus is saying you have to pass through a whole USB controller in order to get hot plug support in a VM.

    I use QEMU/KVM and I can simply pass through specific individual USB ports into my VMs and I can hot plug things into the port and they all work with the VM without rebooting.

    In other words, you shouldn't need to hardware pass through entire USB controllers to achieve hot plug support, you can simply pass through specific USB ports on their own into a VM and hot plug works just fine.

    might be worth looking into telsa and nvidia..... they support nvidia grid and you wouldnt need to pass through entire cards and they could share the same card

    i have a question... you said rebooting takes FOREVER because of the hardware reinitialization
    well, if you are running linux, cant you just do a KEXEC restart?

    2:56 When he said "Virtualization" it made me think of Jeremy from Code Lyoko. No idea why. Maybe because the audio is delayed.

    This is pretty cool and I've thought about something like this at home, but...if you have 6 or 7 people using this and the host much work do you lose?

    Geinuine question: if you can pass individual USB devices into a VM, why couldn't you pass through a USB hub?

    This system would have been MUCH cooler wall mounted (no case) and blue leds.
    The desk pc is also worthy of this hardware.

    I think credit should go to Operating System called Linux and KVM inventor which is the base of Unraid. IOMMU is the magic thing. Can you even think of it on HyperV or Vmware ?

    The issue of spending huge sums of money on a killer PC, is that within a matter of months, your dream rig looks second rate, when even faster graphics cards are introduced.

    50:10 The ground circuit in my home is constantly energized for some reason. I stay in the garage, and one day when moving my PC, I received a shock. I proceeded to do some testing, I don't trust my Harbor Freight multi-meter 100%, but it was reading positive voltage each time I touched a grounded metal surface with one probe and the other to actual ground. It quickly reduced to 0-0.1.
    I drove a rebar stake in the ground outside my window and ran a wire to it. I connected an LED for visual monitoring, then the other lead to a screw on the chassis.
    The LED has been illuminated since. Interestingly, the PC will not resume from standby if it sits for a while (overnight, or when I come home from work); only since connecting the new janky grounding rod. I have to turn it on with the power button and my session is lost. Something very intriguing is going on with the ground here.
    FWIW I "Reset" W10, trying to fix a mouse settings issue, but that didn't help the standby resuming, that is clearly a voltage/current leak. - PS I have a Corsair 650W power supply, so I think? I can trust it.
