I have to agree with Steve.  I've been on Pentium X86 for
two years and I'm as happy as a pig in mud.  My main reason
to be honest is selfish, IMHO Solaris contracts pay bigger
bucks and are more redily available. :-)

I'm so happy with Solaris x86 I'm putting together system #2. :-)

If anyone has delt with Ultra/Wide IBM SCSI disks under
Solaris x86 2.5.1 please read my posting on comp.sys.sun.admin.
I need some help with SCSI ids over 7.

Regards, David
