I think that this is very important also. Most of
the labs on mtu's campus are Sparcs and are currently running
deschal. But, the performance is terrible. A quad 90 machine
is running at the same speed as a Pentium 200.
Most other schools also are running very large sun
labs. An optimized client would really improve the quantity
of keys checked.
