definitely agree with supermicro, freebsd, zfs for servers.  it rocks!

and i lived through duo, hinote, viao, thinkpad, alienware, and now mac.
 i keep the alienware because it has real graphics, 1920x1024, as
opposed to the mac.

on the alienware, i run winxp with cygwin as host, vmware, and then the
freebsd as guest.  if the winxp gets sick, i can suspend the freebsd,
reboot the xp, and resume the suspended freebsd.  so the bsd has a much
longer uptime than the host winxp opsys.  how's that for a sick twist?
