At one point, we were thinking of buying a multi-CPU machine running
Solaris for Intel, rather than the SGI box we eventually bought.  I
asked GCG about Solaris on Intel (I figured Linux would be less
liklely than Solaris) and got the astonishing response:

"We will never support UNIX on Intel"

It's very sad that there are still companies around who think like
that.  Still, it's just one more piece of evidence that the GCG
marketing people have no idea where their biggest market is.

Tim.
