  But .. I have already found so many cool old things in my desk drawers !


  Please upgrade to Solaris 10.  Everyone will be much more happy and you
will not see a big slowdown.  If anything it will be the same or slightly
better.  You have plenty of memory and you may as well look forwards than
reverse eh ?

  Now then .. back to searching my desk ...
