Lisa, that's great news that macs have come down in price so much. I think I'll start looking more closely again. And you're right, the RISC architecture just dances circles around comparable SISC processors like the Intel. Though I do have to say this about Intel... their Xeon processors are absolutely beyond incredible. Our production Oracle server at work is running Linux on dual Zeon 2 GHz processors, and let me tell you.... we benchmarked that thing at 100 X the performance of a similar SUN running Solaris, the world's most notorious resource pig.
Cruciform - Haha, right on man! Nice to know I'm not alone in thinking that OS/2 could have world domination right now if they had just had better marketing. OS/2 Merlin was just a thing of beauty.
