I don't plan on that, but I might just yank the aging Sun machine that
they are using it on. That will leave them only Windows - which is less
convenient since they all sit at FreeBSD workstations all day. They would
have to move themselves, and possibly their data over to the Windows
machines to work on it with ESRI products.
I'm not out to create mutiny, but I would like to ditch that extra and
otherwise unnecessary platform and buy several more PCs with the money it
would cost to replace the Sun.
