I've never worked with a BOXX.  Aside from the top end Opteron  
systems from them, I don't see anything to particularly recommend  
them over HP or IBM workstations.

I thought that we had finally gotten to the point were lots of people  
were doing 8 core machines, both for servers and workstations.   
Previously, 4+ core workstations weren't that common.
