I haven't seen a topic like this so I thought it would be fun to start one, it will be interesting to see
the different hardware everyone is running here. It may give newcomers an idea on how many
hardware setups GNU/Linux is able to run and maybe it will give you inspiration for future purchases.
I will start with my system:

Desktop running Arch:
- Case: Cooler Master N300(Closed)
- Psu: Be Quiet! Pure Power 11 700W CM
- Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC
- Cpu: Intel Core i9-9900KF
- Cpu Cooler: Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4
- Ram: G. Skill Ripjaw V F4-4000C18Q-32GVK
- Gpu: Gigabyte Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming OC 12G
- Ssd: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB

Update: Share all your hardware setups now, not just your main.

In my case, my "main" system isn't my beefiest.

I also have a cooler master (with a bent "foot" on one corner, so it doesn't sit perfectly level".
Intel i7-4790K
16 GB RAM.
INTEL SSDPEKNW010T8 - 1TB NVME (in both M.2 slots, 2TB total)
Asrock Z97 Extreme6.
Nvidia 2080 RTX


I have a second system with a
SUPERMICRO MBD-H11DSI-NT dual Ryzen EPYC, (32 cores)
128 GB RAM.
Nvidia Ti960GT


But I don't use this as my main desltop system. It mostly has VMs on it.

All of my Linux computers are others discarded Windows computers some as old as 2007.

Most run dual core processors and 4.0 GB memory and integrated graphics adapters and mechanical hard drives.

The wife and kids get the new computers with the quad core processors and 8.0 GB memory with graphic cards and SSDs.

The wife and kids are Windows 10 users which is why they get the new computers.

Since my last homebuild went kaput last year my desktop is now a fairly basic business machine
desktop
HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF [ so minimal i call it a laptop in a box]
MB..HP model: 8105
cpu..Quad Core model: Intel Core i5-4590S
ram..ddr3 4gb
onboard sound/graphics
lappy
Dell 1545
cpu intel duel core
ram ddr2 4gb
Netbook
Acer ZG5 [32bit]
cpu Atom 32bit 1500
ram 1.5mb
HD 16gb Zif


the HP Runs Mint + cinnamon [also I have several drives with other distros I use for testing and mucking around with]
the Dell depends on which drive is inserted , I have the choice of Mint 19 XFCE, MX Linux XFCE Peppermint 10 64bit,
the zg5 runs peppermint re-spin 32 bit.

Really? Okay... here goes (all 8 of them: 2 desktops, 4 laptops, and 2 Raspberry Pi's). All are running 24/7 except my daily desktop (it sleeps when I do). The other 7 are SSH available to @h2-1 for inxi development testing.

skite

:)
LOL, nothing to skite about here, Chris! Check the reports! ;)

The 2 HP desktops are from 2009 (they are twins, same day purchase)
Asus laptop from 2012
Lenovo Yoga from 2013
HP laptop from 2014 (has dead battery)
The 2 Raspberry Pi's are low-end (the Pi 4 has 8GB RAM, a nice upgrade on that one)

None have more than 8 GB of RAM.

Ah, and finally, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim laptop from 2020. I actually bought 3 of these on a "Black Friday" sale last November.... for a whopping $120 USD each. Two will be gifts for family (with Linux installed). They are about as low-end as the Pi's, but being a laptop, they include the case, power adapter, keyboard, and display... so probably a better bargain than the Pi in the long run. But they're weird... few Linux distros will run on these laptops (mostly due to eMMC support, I think, but also wireless doesn't work with any Linux yet). For that cheap though... I can tolerate weird. Later distros may support the hardware better. A WiFi dongle solves at least one problem. :)

Really? Okay... here goes (all 8 of them: 2 desktops, 4 laptops, and 2 Raspberry Pi's). All are running 24/7 except my daily desktop (it sleeps when I do). The other 7 are SSH available to @h2-1 for inxi development testing.
You have your ssh port open for the entire internet and allow someone you don't know to login?

You have your ssh port open for the entire internet and allow someone you don't know to login?
I appreciate your skepticism. I tried to lock these boxes down as good as I can, and I'm not an expert in such things. Please critique my setup below. "Someone I don't know" is fairly accurate... we've never met. I am quite a skeptical and suspicious computer user too, and I'm very protective of my home network. Often I will not even download a PDF or other file from "unknown sources." But Harald (@h2-1) and I have exchanged a very long chain of private emails, and I feel he is trustworthy in this arrangement. I would call him a friend, since working on this project with him.

I'm not a coder (inxi is written in Perl), but sharing this hardware is helpful to his project. He uses a lot of virtual machines and tests with his own computers, but the more real hardware he can access to test with, the better. inxi is all about testing hardware... that is its very purpose. We all benefit from the improvements he makes in his program.

Each shared computer is set as follows:
Not using port 22
Shared boxes on a separate subnet from home devices
Firewall enabled on all shared boxes
Don't allow root login
Don't allow any password login at all (SSH key only)
SSH only allows 2 users, Harald and myself

Despite my trust in Harald, I have not just taken a "set and forget" approach. I login to each box regularly, update the software and OS'es, monitor system logs for any suspicious activity or other signs that might indicate unauthorized access. So far, so good, as far as I've been able to tell.

Any tips on monitoring activity or other suggestions to enhance the security of this setup would be welcome. Have I missed anything important?

Best practice for such things is least privilege, so use firewall whitelisting and only allow @h2-1's ip address to access to the ssh port in your firewall configuration. If that is not an option because of him having a dynamic ip address then I would setup fail2ban to watch login attempts on the ssh port.
