Me too. It's one of the best things about Sun hardware.
I've never seen one of the x86-based Suns; can anyone
tell me if they have OpenBoot firmware, or the standard
PC rubbish? For me, it's definitely a deal-breaker if it
doesn't. It's a computer, dammit, and it should be
programmable. Yes, even the firmware, sonny.
While on the topic, am I the only one who wishes that
OpenBoot had a TCP implementation? I'd love to be
able to boot boxes by simply doing:
setenv ip-address 126.96.36.199/24
setenv dns-address 188.8.131.52
setenv router-address 184.108.40.206
C'mon, Sun, is the network *really* the computer?
Or are you guys just "the dot in dot-Net"?
