Hang on a sec... I said "slower", not "slow". I've had tons of sit-down time
in front of the 140's and 150's -- big or small, I had 60 users on these
things. My experience was perhaps tainted -- given the choice between
sitting in front of a 7043-140/200, /233 or /332, you know which one I
I'm sure it's fine for other tasks. And I did say that it would give him a
chance to look at AIX. There are probably "worse" machines to be getting a
first impression from...

Look, you don't have to try to sell me on these machines. (Though I think I
have you beat -- our WMS application is running on a quad 200 R50 and 100 or
so users banging away on Informix. That box runs like a champ.)

Yep, and mine is a 233Mhz P5 running Linux. I would think the 604e would beat
it out, but I'm not sure by how much.
