in reply to My primary PC CPU is a

Mine is a 1Ghz Intel, but i would like a SunBlade 100 or even better an Imac or with more hope ($) a PowerBook Titanium will be great. :)

    I have a SunBlade 100 at work (Solaris) and a 1.4 Ghz Athlon (Linux) at home. Both have .5 GB or RAM or better. The SunBlade is nice, rock-solid hardware, but I would not trade the speed of my Athlon for anything. In fact I spend about half my development time at work SSH'ed into my home box because it runs so much faster. I copy the code over, develop at home and copy it back. Plus that way I can links into PM.org whilst I work. ;)

      Do you literally copy the code? Is your code not in some sort of network-available CVS project? CVS is the only way to go on that sort of situation.

      You'll love it. Trust me.

        I'm pushing hard to get CVS here. I use it at home, but I'm selling it to a group of developers who have 'got along fine without it for years'. I have the go ahead to install it and come up with a compelling demo. The only thing I haven't played with is using it over an SSH tunnel, which would be a requirement to using it from home. The other challenge is that we use e*Gate 4.5.1 which has it's own pretend version control (basically only locking) and CVS will have to play nice with it.

        Thanks for the input, though,

      I use a SunBlade 100 too and I actually think the thing is slower than my AMD K62-350 at home. In fact, I honestly feel that the x86 machines I have worked on (comparable clock speeds) actually handle resource loads better than the Sun boxen do. I upgraded recently from an ultra5 (man I loved that machine) to this sun blade (sunpci 2) and while I still enjoy this beast, I sometimes wish I had an x86 box here running some flavor of BSD. What I hate most is Solaris 8....or Solaris in general. I hate proprietary junk. The one good thing about the Sun boxes is the diags you can do on the machines from the eprom. Did I mention that I am not fond of Solaris? Oh yeah, I did.

      Now of course, when it comes down to hard core servers a machine that can have 32 procs and 20 gig of ram is tough to be beat by an x86 machine so, those types of machines are not what I am talking about; strictly client boxen.
