Of course one size machine, architecture, budget does not fit all.  That
much is obvious.

The question I asked was what the actual costs are involved in these
"best efforts".  Moreover I posited that they might belie the claims of
"low costs" of certain architectures, or TCO's of others.  I further
posited that these TCOs may not render such machines viable from the
purchasers point of view.
