Not everybody. I built my own systems.

Never used either one of them. I went from flipping front panel switches
to CP/M to MSDOS. Then Win98 for about a month before I got fed up with
that POS and loaded Linux. Never looked back and started using BSD and
real Unices, too.

Let's take inventory on this network:
2 Sun Ultra machines running Solaris
2 Compaq machines running OpenBSD
1 homebuilt machine with Iwill MB running Linux
1 homebuilt machine with Asus MB running Solaris
1 HP Vectra running OpenBSD
Seven machines and none made by Dell, but I do admin a couple of Dell
servers running OpenBSD at a local ISP.
