I think it depends on what you need. It was fine for me, using MS
Word and MS Powerpoint, as well as for running (not developing) Java
GUI-based applications (which have not tended to be that fast on
Unix, unlike say non-GUI apps).


The speed of recent Java machines is, I think, more than decent on say
Linux (and not sooooo bad on SGI). I however observed the following
particaularities: If the java library files are local the GUI things
behave honestly, but if they are remote they are awfully slow (even if the
java application is run locally !... Java experts must help me with an
explanation for that)


Best,
