i stopped buying, yes.  i stopped accepting, no.  my main DNS/mail server is
a sparc2.  and it does a great job.  too slow?  even under NetBSD? uhm, no. :)

that is rather surprising.  my wife likes my sparc20 (it's got a 21" monitor
and two 17" monitors, so it's pretty impressive looking and all *G*) but she
is still happier with a PC/Mac.  although she can point my sparc20 at hotmail
and read her email, so she's happy enough with it. :)
