solaris and an umbrella.

Here I am…thinking (dreaming) about replacing my Apple G4 Cube with a sweet Sun Solaris set up, since all my web development work at home is done with text editors and It is definitely time to learn Solaris, but I do not want to put out the $$ for Sun hardware (and yet I do not want to buy PC hardware either). Ken turned me on to Shuttle hardware which is a SFF (small form factor) maker, and their hardware looks pretty decent…and is something I am not used to…it is cheap. I built a complete computer for under $700 (I have a hardrive for it already) which Ken assures me would be a killer game machine if I actually put W on it. Yeah that’s right, I will not spell it out 😉 . This is very tempting for me (a cheap solution running Solaris), but now it is time to make sure everything will work nicely with Solaris. I will say I am very happy with Apple for making hardware purchasing so easy, but it is really quite wild to me to have so many options. Choose your poison I suppose. Back to Sun’s web site to check out the forums.
PS, while searching for “SN95G5, Solaris” I came up with something crazy (the umrella part of the post). Can’t get too much mroe random than that.
