That seems to be the way we've evaluated it. Since we have home
directories exported from every Sun we own, and easily have more
than 2 users logged on at any time, all of ours would be servers.
Now if you just don't network the Sun, you might be able to have
it a client.

Probably the people who installed Solaris 2.1 and then had to
quickly switch to 4.1.3 might agree a little bit.

NextStep for Sun, anyone?
