well i don't know why.. it's a server so you put the best hardware in
it? And of course, cutting edge server OSes, like Windows2000 have
those nice graphical management tools that make working on them such a
like the Compaq Proliant servers had Ati RagePro chips in them, back
when RagePro wasn't too bad.
And of course linux didn't properly support those chips for ages.
Remember trying to install RH6.1 or somesuch on a Proliant and the
bloody GUI install thingy wouldn't work... typical.
really just fed up with this Unix stuff now.... think i'll go get an
MCSE and work on proper OSes.
