Re: Mini computer

The latest Pi has multiple I/O methods to more quickly move data around. You could run a lot of SSH connections to it. I don't know how many you can do before it slows down, but thirty works at least. Of course, if you're trying to run GUIs on those connections or if they're running complex software, that would be effective in making it sluggish. With relatively simple programs for data entry and manipulation though, I don't think it would be a problem. Don't get me wrong, the efficiency of old computers is very impressive, but if we limit ourselves to the activities they performed, our modern computers can demonstrate their advancement.
