Literally better off downloading ANY generic Linux, doing GPU passthrough to Windows 7/10 heavily ripped apart and optimized for boot-to-games and be done with it.
In the latter case, rip Win10 apart harder and block every domain that isn't game-servers, kill every retard service and happy times.

Pretty much every i5 processor and up supports passthrough, most GPUs support it now, and more motherboards are getting support for it.
Hardware Virtualization is more-or-less becoming a basic feature now.
It's even going in to mobile CPUs.

Don't buy that one, it's just a T550 with a quadro GPU. I owned the P50s and P51s which are the successors to the W550s. They're literally just T5x0 models with a weak workstation GPU. Get something else.

You could do what I'm doing and go the meme route. a W541 is expensive as shit, but you can get a T540p with a W540 motherboard (auctions, I just got one for $22, it's a $200+ part), and replace the touchpad. Same exact thing as a W541.

digital forensics, e-discovery and infosec are great but difficult career paths that won't be replaced unlike most basic programming options "let's teach girls, kids, third-worlders how to code". The the fallback for many in these fields is their com skills are bad and they can't break down complex ideas to people outside of the field, so language skills are a must.

This. Node.js is mostly a fucked-up, convoluted, and half-assed solution in search of a problem (WebSockets/One Language Fits All) and since all the hype is behind it and all of its' related technologies, you have to know how to develop for it or rip something out of npm (A fucking Javascript package manager) properly to keep up with the times. Javascript's weaknesses really are brought to light when trying to figure this shit out, and good fucking luck trying to do that, since everything's still kinda moving fast in that ecosystem, it's entirely possible to be reading some guide from a year ago that's already depreciated.

Getting a CS degree instead of self-teaching is a meme.

If you've already learned a linguistics mindset then you'll have a relatively easy time with programming. The basics are pretty similar.

So, my Nexus 6 ate shit the other week.

Pains me, because after the glass cracked I realized that this is the only phone that I have ever owned that I have not had an issue with and wish to continue owning past the upcoming 2-year mark. Love this thing, just wish the screen wasn't AMOLED so it wouldn't inevitably burn in and make me give up on this otherwise indestructible goddamned brick of perfection.

I'm looking at either the Nexus 5X or potentially repairing my 6 with a new backplate, midframe, and screen assembly (thus making it basically like-new).
I do NOT want the 6P because it is borderline impossible to repair.
Also, because I am on Verizon, my choices for an unlocked device are basically limited to the Nexuses and a Moto G4/G5, the Motos being a downgrade from what I currently have.

Here are my fears for both options:

*I order expensive (fucking AMOLED is expensive) replacement parts and they are not as good as OEM parts (despite every site claiming they sell OEM), so my 6 is worse than before and the screen either fails after several months or the quality of the AMOLED panel decays incredibly rapidly.
*The reports of the 5X being fucking slow (despite benchmarking better than the 6) are true and the 5X ends up being a downgrade. I am also afraid of the backpanel (I'd be getting the black one to help avoid this) getting scratched and stained to an unrecognizable state despite putting a case on it.

Whatever happens, I will be running LineageOS if that makes a difference.

It is for embedded systems. A lot of times, industrial equipment will be interfaced with Ethernet. And use Ethernet internally for something else.
If the machine needs to do something specific, you can use the PCI port for special made extension-cards.
