I prefer Foam over Powder

by Snowtroll

Sure, the foam isn't as effective as the Powder, but at least it doesn't destroy everything that the fire didn't ruin...

But in Server rooms(well, cupboards mostly) where it's not practical to install NoHal or similar fire-suppression, nothing much beats CO2-based extinguishers.

Incidentally, a firefighter who came by and talked fire safety at the office said that they could usually tell where a powder-based extinguisher had been stored before the fire because there was usually a wide trail of powder from there to the fire.
(People panics, pull the safety, then lift the extinguisher by the handle and squeeze, before even starting to move towards the fire.)
