Summary: Question for SunPCi co-processor users

First let me say that I am aware that you can run SunPCi and display in X as
a number of you pointed out. Unfortunately I have heard/read that the
graphics are not the best. As my users will be working with Photoshop and
Illustrator they need to have the best graphics (WYSIWG) that I can get them
as these folks are technical publicists and need true color accuracy.

In summary, the answer is yes - many of you are doing just what I had hoped
for. What is also interesting is that a number of you said that I would not
lose cut/paste between X and VGA (interesting!!). My only concern now is
having to use Meta-M to switch the mouse - that was a pain in the butt for
some users back when I was running SunPC 586 133Mhz on Sparc 5 but I guess
we'll have to deal with it.

is a Unix variant they will re-consider Solaris)
