My project is contemplating purchasing some unix workstations shortly. We
are looking at a number of systems to fit the bill. I would be interested
in hearing feedback from from those who use *BOTH* RS/6000's and other
current-model unix graphics workstations (Sun, Mips, DEC and SGI workstations
in particular). Main points of interest are ease of setup/use/maintenance
of the system (network), programming ease/difficulty, compatibility, and
support. Lastly, I'd like to pose the question, "would you buy one again
if you had the chance".
I'm aware that this leaves the door wide open for responses. That's just
fine with me. I'm happy to hear any praise or complaints (here's your
chance to get something off your chest).
Because I'm likely to get lots of response, DON'T POST YOUR RESPONSE TO
THIS NEWSGROUP. Mail it to me instead. I *will* summarize (might be long).
If you respond, but don't want your response in the summary, I will honour your
Thankyou for your help.
