I just recently (about 3 weeks ago) purchased a system (VArStation 27)
from VA Research. This was a big step for me, as my previous experience
with Linux was tinkering with MkLinux on my PowerMac. I've been very
please with their hardware and their service after the sale. I've had
to submit questions to their tech support department and I've always
recieved a response in under 24 hours. I can't really compare my
experience to anything since this is my first Linux system. The
hardware seems sturdy. I received the complete RedHat 5.0 distribution
plust a rather enourmous book titled "Linux: The Complete Reference". I
would buy another system from VA Research in the future.
