I'm used to high prices for the hardware, but in the Sun shops of past
jobs, the OS licenses were nowhere near that high. I think even on our
largest systems we never paid much for the OS.

Sometimes the Sun reps just gave us an OS license even, though maybe
that was actually against the rules.

The local SGI rep gives away hardware all the time instead of shipping
it back to California for recycling.
