Oh, come now.  What's wrong with the PCI bus?  It's vastly faster, and in 
many ways saner, than SBus.  And they've latched onto cheap, insanely 
functionaly video cards and cheap hard drives for workstations (not for 
servers, of course). 

Personally, I think Sun is spot on.  There's something to be said for 
economies of scale.
