Different computers for different uses.  I do a lot of video/media
production for a client, so I need a machine that will do stuff 
(like HP scanner, Photoshop..)

My four main machines:
	- SunBlade 100, 512meg RAM, Expert3D Lite, 15G, Sun 21", Solaris 8 4/01
	  (general stuff, desktop)
	- K7/Athlon 700Mhz, Abit KT7, 1G RAM, 20G, GeForce 2MX, SBLive! 
	  (TV card, video digitizing, PhotoShop, HP USB scanner, MP3 jukebox)
	  (Win2K SP2, also VMWare and RH7.1)
	- PowerMac 7600/200Mhz, 64Meg RAM, 2G HD, MacOS 9.1
	  (for looking at web pages in Mac MSIE/NS/Opera)
	- Ultra 60, 1G RAM, 9G HD, Creator3D, Solaris 8 4/01
	  (headless computer/database/web test environment)

Just because I like Sun machines doesent mean that I have to use them
for EVERYTHING - certain stuff is easier done/created on a Windows 
machine due to software and hardware compatibility issues.

I prefer GIMP to PS6 on Windows, but PS6 is better when using it to
touch up slides and negatives I've scanned.
