One year ago I wrote an article about the workstation market, if I compare this article to the situation today, quite everything has changed in this pretty short period of time. So now it's time for an update."

Hi Robert,

what I mean is eg. EDA software like First Encounter from Cadence or MCAD software like Catia. This software is typical for a workstation usage and it's widely used on Solaris/SPARC, but not on Solaris/x86.

Regards,

Anton

In both cases that is some pretty specialized stuff, not disimilar to some of tools used by our GIS people where the most popular platforms get it and some don't. It's like Linux, if enough people clamor for it, they will eventually write/port it.
