If I had an IRIX box right now, it would be spinning rust or an SSD. One day I
hope to have a Crimson and a Fuel.
Any 3b2 is going to be significantly slower.
I still remember when I had my first 600G (not GR) that got upgraded to (3) 327
Mb drives. I was very excited that I had *just shy* of 1 Gig of hard disk
storage space available.
Very different times.
