well, I was thinking of the major degradation in the ultra 5 and the
minor changes to the 2. I have had no interaction with the 30/60.
These changes still do not bring the cases to the level of PC cases
which are on the market today (especially gateway and dell cases).

Eek. I hope that the server models are (I guess it is "were" now)
better. Although I have no particular affinity for the alpha platform
as I have never worked with them, I really thought that DEC had the
toughest cases I had ever seen. I guess you have to save money
somewhere when you are competing with PCs.
