A few minutes ago I wanted to reboot so I could continue my Skype testing.
Instead, to simulate the all-to-frequent-here power outages, I decided to just hit the master power switch (the rocker on the back) while I was in full swing.
[EDIT: It is worth noting, that given its tiny power draw, the Zonbu could last 6-10x longer on a UPS than an equivalent desktop PC. Likely outlasting most common outages.]
At the time, I had the IM client (Gaim) open, as well as Skype running and an IM going in there. I also had about six browser windows open, Rhapsody playing music and I was testing the Evolution E-Mail client, and had that open to my test mailbox…
All in all, lots to break.
On reboot I had no funny errors.
On relaunching the applications (including Evolution) I had no visible complaints either. Everything is where it should be.
Maybe I just lucked out, or maybe the Linux apps are more resilient than their windows counterparts.
Either way, it was a pleasant surprise.
