Sun3/60 are indeed slow.  But they work nicely as X display servers.
And they handling clock chipping quite nicely! :-)

I just up graded mine from 20 MHz to 25 Mhz.  Now I need to find
a 30 MHz clock and try that...


:)  Sorry, but I just had to share.  Clock chipping out machines
    is pretty neat.  

If anyone is interestested in the procedure email me and I'll write something
up.  I believe someone has sone a web site on it as well.  You do have to
know how to use a soldering iron pretty well is all.
