Or, let us give a bit of credit to a vendor who not only operated
fairly open regarding specifications, and who donated hardware to the
various projects to get things happening. Certainly, noone from Intel
or HP has ever given us any cpu hardware for us to code against. And
I don't expect that to change. So how about buying from the good guy
this time around.
