Subject: Which small UNIX system would YOU buy?

  Nearly every week, some new 16/32-bit microcomputer announces a
UNIX or UNIX-like operating system for their hardware.  Many of these
are small (1-4) multiuser systems, and generally cost between 9-15K.
This price range is within reach by many departments at small-medium
size universities, which is my primary concern.
  So, for all of you who have small, relatively inexpensive multiuser
UNIX systems, I have 3 questions:

1)  What system do you have, and why did you pick it?

2)  What system would you buy today?

3)  What is the worst system you have seen, and why?

As always, I will compile the responses, and post to the net.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
