To be realistic, Peter, how many 400s are used for simulation?  Also, your
argument implies that something like simulation would run faster on a 400
than an Intel box, which isn't true.  It seems to me that 400s are used for
multi-user business applications because that's what it's architecture is
designed for, and where it's value lies.
