comment Why do we still use power supplies on datacenter servers?
@MSalters: When I visited a vintage computer museum, I was told that some of the supercomputers exhibited there were running on 400Hz for that very reason. One Cray in particular, if I remember correctly. They had some motor-generator device centrally installed to do the frequency change for the whole center, and the inertia of its rotor also served as a short-term UPS. I guess radio emission from the power supply lines might be a problem these days, though.

@MikeyB: There is a small win: you won't accidentially expose it while searching through your history while someone is looking over your shoulder.
