Does anyone have any hard data comparing the VAXstation 3100 (running
Ultrix) against the SUN 3/80?  SUN is claiming the performance is the
same as the VAXstation 3100 but I don't have a 3/80 to compare against
our VAXstation.  If anyone has done any benchmarks between these two
systems I would appreciate any data you may have gathered.

While I do not know the speed of the CVAX chipset for the 3200/3500/3600/62x0
series of processors, the VAXstation 3100 used an 80 nsec. chip, which
figured out to be 3.2 VUPs.  If you were right about the 3200's CPU speed,
then the 3100's integer benchmarks would have been faster than the 3200s.

		       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 v IBM.
