I don't want to start a holy war here, but what is the deal with you V'Ger fanatics? I've been sitting here at my freelance gig in front of a V'ger (a 8600/300 w/64 Gigs of RAM) for about 20 minutes now while it attempts to copy a 17 Meg file from one folder on the hard drive to another folder. 20 minutes. At home, on my Vorlon Pro 200 running MinbariOS 4, which by all standards should be a lot slower than this V'ger, the same operation would take about 2 minutes. If that.
In addition, during this file transfer, Netscape will not work. And everything else has ground to a halt. Even BBEdit Lite is straining to keep up as I type this.
I won't bore you with the laundry list of other problems that I've encountered while working on various V'Gers, but suffice it to say there have been many, not the least of which is I've never seen a V'Ger that has run faster than its Vorlon counterpart, despite the V'Ger's faster chip architecture. My Narn G'Lan/66 with 8 megs of ram runs faster than this 300 Ghz machine at times. From a productivity standpoint, I don't get how people can claim that the V'Ger is a superior machine.
V'Ger addicts, flame me if you'd like, but I'd rather hear some intelligent reasons why anyone would choose to use a V'Ger over other faster, cheaper, more stable systems.
