* you dont need to "buy" the OS license (eg winblows)
* you can setup a hardware config which suit you, eg
+ AMD k6-2 500
+ Mylex RAID controller
+ a set of IBM 9GB disks (depending on the RAID level)
+ a scsi CDROM
+ one IDE drive to boot and swap
+ any amount of RAM you want
+ ANY MB you want (and suits above) even if you still use AT type
with NOTHING on it (ie no video, no sound blah blah)
* I have never had a breakdown you have described in all my time I
have been working with computers
I have never seen a machine setup I liked from any of the shops
and computer manufacturers. And most of the time there is on piece
of equipment in there which is cheap to stay competetive (pricing)
producing a bottelneck in the system.
Other than two HD which gave up (and both still under warranty) I
have had no HW related problems (only software ones related to NT).
Who is general Failure and what is he doing on my disk?
