To be honest I am a hardware junkie, I just love fooling with he stuff. The
machine I am using depends on what I am trying to do, for example, I play
with some graphics stuff on my SGI Indigo 2, it just has big hairy graphics
balls. when I want to do a ton of things simultaneously I use my Ultra SPARC
box, for simple things like doing e-mail I lay in bed with my PIII laptop
and just get comfy. Other boxes like the Alpha's and the HP PA-RISC machines
have huge ability to leap over numbers with a single wham! They make kick
ass SETI and RC5 crunching boxes as well as bad ass CAD machines. I run my
mail and web server on an SS2, most of the other machines I own are just
sitting around till I get moved into my house I am buying then I will find
productive work for them. Of course we all have our own personal fav's but
the truth is if you wanna get work done, get a real machine with a real CPU
like any of the UNIX boxes from the previously mentioned 5 companies.
