now your are putting it over the top. You make it sound like I'm some
crazy environmentalist or eco-warrior. Well, I'm not. I merely keep
the environment in mind. Yes, I have a modern, power saving washing
machine and LED lights at home. Mostly because they save money in the
long run (Germany's electricity prices are high).
That was also the point behind my comment. Increased performance
result in better efficiency which lead to better utilization of
hardware and less power consumption. Companies are interested in
better efficiency, because they have to pay less for hardware, power
and cooling. The obvious benefits for our environment are a side effect.
A smaller CO2 foot print is not my main concern. But I wanted to bring
it up anyway. For some it is an small additional motivator for
performance improvements. For others it could be a marketing
instrument. In Germany ads are full of crazy 'green' slogans.
