That's part and parcel of the over-engineering.  Over-engineering is a 
word with two definitions: excessive capability for purpose OR excessive 
complexity for purpose.

In the SBus systems, particularly the pizzabox workstations, Sun managed 
to hit both notes on a regular basis.

Steel chassis built to survive the apocalypse, system cooling that would 
fail if the HDD ran too hot.
