RE: System i5 first boot



fixed

The $1300 price tag helped me make my decision :-)  Granted if a business
was REALLY needing multiple LPAR's then justifying $1300 isn't too hard, but
I couldn't justify it for our shop.

Hi Don

Why would a twinax terminal be a smarter business decision than a HMC ?
Other than in a small shop with no remote support required, no non-linux
partitioning requirements and only one system. In hat other circumstances
would it be a better choice ?

 Twinax rules - the KISS method helps keep one's blood pressure down, 
not to mention that it is a wise business decision.
