Maybe.  I can say for sure that an older PIII 2-way VA Linux box
running FreeBSD that we had here was running cirles around a 2-way
E450 we have.  I think it sort of depends on the kind of load.

The really _big_ advantage Sun is supposed to offer is the supreme
hardware reliability.  In the interests of not rousing any lawyers, I
will refrain from commenting on the extent to which that advantage is
realised in fact.
