This is mostly due to my dislike of AIX, and some bad experiences
while a customer of IBM; the POWER chips aren't really the problem.
And as I said, there's more to buying systems than raw performance
(if it were, then why's Alpha dead and gone now?)

Anyway, this probably isn't rescue-related.  I'm sorry if I've triggered
a flame-war.  I simply wanted to say that I'm pretty sure that SPARC's
got legs yet.
