I happen to disagree the Netfinity  is a brillant system--the black box ones
that can take 4 processers.
I purchased a brand new on ebay--I use it a lot more that my Model 200.Its
just as reliable as my AS400.
Enterprise server developers have always had to cope with feeling inferior
to their mainframe cousins.
