   Yeah but then you've lost the cost advantage.  Those big, 
full-of-empty-space "server" x86 systems are really fucking expensive, 
more so than a lot of "real computers".  So you've leveled the playing 
field with regard to failure rates (well, at least of the hardware) but 
then the x86 boxes are more expensive!
