    Why's there a forum dedicated to RaQ servers?

    Just curious... Why is there a forum dedicated to RaQ servers here on WebHostingTalk?

    Yeah, me too, I have three RaQ4i's collecting dust in my basement.

    My best guess is that at the time the raq forum was created (roughly 2001 based on old threads) the boxes were still in use Old technology sometimes takes time to phase out and the machines were still serviceable at the time.

    I guess it's not really hurting anything as is but could probably be merged into the general dedicated server section to reduce clutter.

    I was feeling nostalgic and decided to pop my head in. Man, those Raq3 servers were awesome. 300Mhz of raw power and 128mb of memory with dual 20gb drives. And still were able to run 200 sites. Madness.

    Wow. I had no idea what the Colbalt RaQ even meant. That is until I got curious and decided to check this part of the forum out and found this thread.

    Interesting.

    Cobalt servers were one of the first with an easy to use user control panel. Back in the day, before cpanel, directadmin etc - most of the hosting industry ran on RaQ servers.

    I've always wondered what this section of the forum is about. Too young to now about it I suppose. Came to the market when cPanel was already around. Interesting indeed.
