I can't speak for anybody else, but I've got a bunch of PC stuff and two
SS20s. It would be nice to add the two Sun boxen to the stack without having
to try to fit two more keyboards and mice into my work area, but all I've got
is a Belkin PS/2 KVM and a limited budget. (And I can't really run the SPARCs
anywhere else, unless I go remote, because I have exactly one monitor in the
house that will support them.)

So my vote would be to use PC stuff on the Sun box... but I can surely see
either one would be desireable.

OTOH, I like to call myself an embedded systems software engineer. Sometimes
even believe it. Perhaps I'm looking at my next project?


Crime is merely politics without the excuses.
