yes, except that I would prefer to spend money on getting a pre-packaged
solution rather than spending time customising boxes, dealing with
customised upgrades, and so on. Fascinating and all as they are, console
servers are a means to an end, and the less time I'm forced to spend
trashing them into submission and maintaining them on an ongoing basis, the
more time I have for productive work.
