Sorry you took it that way. It wasnt meant to be offensive.

I just seems to be "fan boyish" to recommend a $200 Sun over a $200 PC
because the PC uses "teeny little processors." Yeah, a $200 dual Xeon,
will run most end user compute-intensive applications far, far faster
than an Ultra 60. Somehow Xeons and Athlons are "teeny little
processors" because they aren't slow?
