You have possible no imagination about how real the business is I do
What's worth it to be able running 2.0 and 2.4 on the same box?

BTW we don't run much of Cyrix486 hardware anymore here.. More like
boxes with few gigs of ram 4 CPU's RAID and so on...
The single biggest memmory hog here is currently the Oracle 9i AS.
