    Alan,

    there are still people who are a bit sensitive to noise (more than us :)
    who won't agree with your idea. They'd even risk 80 % of their machine's
    speed for silence (well there are few PCs without a fan, but silent fans
    _do_ exist, and Sparc SLCs don't have a fan, either :)
    So let them do if they want.

    Steffen
