FWIW, I have a FC2 dual opteron workstation, and just in the last few
days got Oracle 9i up and running on it. Not a production server, mind
you, just my own sandbox.
I've found my workstation to be (subjectively) *very* fast. I find that
WinXP inside a VMWare host is nice and responsive, as is Lotus Notes
under wine (CrossOver Office). In a slightly more quantitative test, I
can compile Postgres from a clean source tree in 1.5 minutes using "make
-j 2", versus anywhere from 4.5 to 12 minutes on other machines that I
have readily available (part of that is undoubtedly scsi vs ide drives).
