IDE on big boxes? Is that crack I smell burning? A desktop with 4 GB
is a fun toy, but bigger than *I* need, even for development purposes.
But I don't think EMC, Clariion (low end EMC), Shark, etc. have any
IDE products for my 8-proc 16 GB machine... And running pre-patches in
a production environment that might expose this would be a little
silly as well.

Probably a bad example to extrapolate large system numbers from.
