Why $5k?  Any decent Linux machine should be able to outperform
a loaded HP, I'd think.  Walmart is selling Linux-compatible boxes
without monitors or ethernet connections for $400 on up; that
should outperform an HP doing a lot of database work running CVS
on NFS.  Disk space and CPU power are cheap nowadays.

Does anybody care how fast the database runs?  If so, you might
consider that.

I'm getting the same garbage here, FWIW.
