but take BNFL - (despite bad press!) - i set up a linux server with them
(aside from summer job) - and even though their SUN network was fine -
linux was better! + easier - same tools but better - and of course more
software! was inundated with account requests.

plus - check this - redhat 6.0 on a pentium 90 with 32mb ram - ran long
and hard simulation (f77) almost as fast as a sun4! (6/5 the time)

not bad!
