	Agreed.  I have run Solaris (only up thru 2.6 though) in its
	"native" environment (Sun hardware) and even there the performance
	is not anything one would write home about.  The difference between
	SunOS 4.1.x and Solaris 2.x is dramatic in favor on the older leaner

	I have not run Solarix x86 though but have heard from others (before
	this) that its performance is quite a bit less than a BSD* system.
