Yeah you right on the spot with the auto turn-on.

I have also seen some freaky **** with that.

For example if I just gently touch the backplate of the PC near the
network card it will actually turn the PC on from sleep mode ?!


This is not sleep mode. This is a desktop and is *off*, shut down...
has to boot windows to come up again.

The scare about running software 24/7 also has to do with the internet,
software, windows, acrobat, flash, and all kinds of updating going on.

I've had a Linux web server with email, ssh, ftp, etc. services as well
the web server, running at home for more than a decade. Long ago, I got
hacked a couple of times, now I think I have the security set high enough
so that the idiots and even the pros are prelly well locked out.


No way. I have mine set up a bit higher than that, but it wouldn't
survive for long against a serious attack. As with all military
strategy, the question is which side is going to put more effort
and ingenuity in than the other. That being done, it then comes
down to luck. As in logistic regression ....

No way. I run a similar, but significantly more locked-down, system
and it wouldn't stop even a lone professional. Let alone organised
crime, like MI5, the CIA, Mossad or the Mafia.

VIA (remember them?) have been making fanless CPUs for donkeys years,
for set-top boxes, cash registers and so on.

Weren't they at one point Cyrix from pre-X586 (Pentium pin sockets),
aka 486 processors -- a merger/acquisition of the two?

I got one for "free" as they were part of the swag at a recent trade
show (also a Samsung Gear 2 watch) that cost $50. This is not something
to use for gaming.

The normal price is around $150 but that's without memory or storage.

From Wiki...

"Swag, promotional items given away at trade fairs and events"

Probably originated from:

"Swag, slang originating in the early 1800s for stolen goods or
booty."
