they are quiet, quick, and make great desktops, esp. with two high-end
framebuffers ;^) Unfortunately, IDE drives are not supported locally,
Is there an architectural reason or other reason that an Ultra 2 or 5
with the same CPUs would be less desireable? The U60 is rather large.
Supposedly the 360Mhz CPU with 4MB cache is quite quick, though.
