Err, Linux isn't only for x86. It runs quite well on UltraSparc and
PowerPC (and S/390 / zSeries) as well. I *guarantee* you could run have
more users under Linux on a z990 (or possibly a z900) than on anything
that Sun sells. : ) Of course, the IBM machine might cost a bit more.
I just wish more ISPs saw the benefits of having a single machine (or
sysplex, for redundancy) that services all their customers instead of 10
racks of PC boxen that service a fraction of their customers.
