Yep, the LX feels alot slower than it should.  Netscape 4.x ran 
painfully on there (while netscape 3.x ran fast).

A U10 really isn't that bad if you don't do anything disk intensive or
if you use SCSI.  I'm using one now, and I's not much different
than the U30/300 at home for most things.  The key is to have lots
of ram if you are using Solaris > 7.
