In for a penny, in for a pound.. Once you are using the Gnu C compiler -

I didn't say it was right or fair Dave, but it is the truth :-) Actually,
the cheap x86 PC's are so economical right now that we can afford to build
systems that are redundant multiple times for a fraction of the cost of
even some good Sun hardware. I wish it weren't so though cause I would
really like to have some nice Sun hardware to tinker with at work!
