Everybody has abandonned *(pick any computer we are running in our 
basements or in your case your garage yet were great designs)* but it 
still doesn't make them bad ideas...

Windows outsells Unix, therefore Windows is better and Unix is a bad idea?


At any rate, I need to bring my machine up to 1GB to run Oracle 10G 
(altough you can get it to install/run on 768MB), which should be 
available for Solaris x86 this month. I dont want to replace the mobo to 
use DDR, so I'm trying to buy for a reasonable cost or trade a pair of 
256MB. Next mobo I get will run an Opteron and whatever ram techno is 
best suited.
