IMHO, you are being short-sighted. Linux doesn't just run on PC boxen. That was my point earlier about the S/390. You assume too much. BTW, let's see you do the same thing with Sun gear, even Netras. How about hot-swapping a blade in a Cisco Catalyst 6509(not sure, here. I usually shut 'em down to do that.)? BTW, if you can find the hot-swap gear you want to run then I can probably get Linux to run on it (it just takes a while). Linux runs everywhere from Pal Pilots to S/390s (has any one seen it on a Sun e10K yet?) In this day and age, such absolute statements are a little hazardous. Their shelf-life, even if true, is measured in micro-secs. -- The only absolute is that there are no absolutes.
