in thread My primary PC CPU is a

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.
