It goes way beyond the i7 sticky though, as there's also:...and even the current non-stickies:The Pro Tools hardware/software sales generated from those threads alone are responsible for a lot of revenue the past 12 years. It's in their best interest to acknowledge custom builds and make the information easy to find via a sticky, instead of a user sifting through thousands of scattered threads and posts. Keep in mind folks that a sticky does not mean, "Avid approved & endorsed", as there's just no way they could qualify all those systems.

As a side note, the originator of the sticky usually puts in quit a few years of updating and maintaining the sticky. It's a lot of work just for that alone. Even when you retire from it, it still goes on as people hunt you down via email.
