They are both in Verio datacenters. The FreeBSD box is in Virginia and
the Windoze box is in California.
It's all very silly. You can get UnixWare V7 or Open UNIX 8 for the ES7000
and the other Unisys boxes. The bottom line is that Unisys just isn't
selling very many machines, and Microsoft wants to sell $100000 Windows 2000
datacenter licenses. Since the isn't a standard "Wintel" box, there was
probably a fair amount of development money spent. The top of the line ES7000
is $1000000+. I'd hate to get NIMDA virus on a box like that.
