Well we use only Sun Servers here and I feel quite save with this,
performance is not everything ... our Sun Servers never crash (if
they do, it is hardware and it has to be repaired) ...

Its just, that if you are init for the speed, then I guess sun is
not potimal ... if you are init for a combination of things like
speed and reliability then sun is great ...
