...Or buy a pSeries presuming TCPA-like DRM doesnt get put into any 
later models (excluding AIX's license management),
and knowing it'll last a lot longer than its mostly Far East counterpart 
(including the Intel based Jobs' Folly). At least IBM is
willing to do POWER the right way, without the glitter worshipping cult.

At least if you have to hurl one of those, it'll give the target a big 
dent if you have the need and ability to throw. Jobs' Folly
would break before it hits the intended target. Same thing would happen 
to that 3rd world box as well.
