Linux on a 386SX box, then?

The point is, that Linux is so versatile that there's no other OS that
can compare (and yes, I *was* a Solaris high-end man).

Linux (depending on distro) can run on anything from a 386 Intel
machine, to an IBM S/390 mainframe with multiple virtual processors -
and more or less anything in between. The file system support (depending
on what you choose) can give you terrabyte and journaling support, the
memory Gigabyte support, BDB 4 can give you 256 terrabyte databases with
journaling support, there's ample documentation included with the
Berkeley BDB 4 distribution. It tells you how to calculate everything
you need, and the math level needed is that of a high school kid.

I wasn't intending to annoy you, it's just that you could have begun by
