|I keep half deciding to buy a new Sparc machine - but I just cant justify a workstation that costs that much - when x86 blows them out of the water for less money. Its not fair as I love my old Ultra 10 but it's been stuffed under the bench and disconnected in favour of my laptop.
I miss using the Ultra - I dont think it was the speed so much as the feeling that it was bomb proof and very stable (provided I wasnt screwing around with the system all the time that is )
Even the home servers have moved to x86 now for better disk IO performance - ahh well I'll be back when I can afford an Ultra 45

Gnome on the desk, Intel in the box, on-board everything, but it all works!
