well, I would assume when one purchases such an expensive server, they are 
going to have real uses for it (unless they were duped into purchasing it)

real usage would mean stability and not playing games

there seems to be a big difference between:

HPASM --> linux --> hardware


HPASM --> linux --> linux-emu --> BSD --> hardware

(I have no idea what HP's warrenty, SLA's, etc state about which OS should be 
running on the box)
