Lots more still planned

By the way, this article in process of adding a lot more sections and performing editing. Jamespharvey20 (talk) 00:10, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Section "Introduction : Available for the masses"

I figured this section would, at minimum, be controversial on whether it should be deleted.

On one hand, the Wiki shouldn't sound like advertising material.

On the other hand, when I first started reading about faster than 10 Gigabit Ethernet being used with supercomputers, clusters, and data centers, I crossed it out in my mind as being unaffordable for "regular people". I figure many others would have the same reaction.

Any thoughts on how to achieve explaining it's affordable, while staying within the Wiki rules / styling? Or, does this section just have to go, and hope people run across the affordability on their own? Jamespharvey20 (talk) 00:05, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

I would suggest:
  • Changing the heading to something more neutral like "Low costs", or "Affordable", or even merging the section into the "Overview".
  • Deleting the "As of mid 2015 [...] go for $10-20" part: the "allowing used InfiniBand devices to affordably be used at home or smaller businesses" in the previous sentence should explain the concept clearly enough.
