My main computer, on which I run my webserver, mailserver, and ftp
server, is a 32-bit computer with 256 megabytes of memory.  It is the
computer on which I am writing these words now.  And I am using ZFS
filesystems for most of the files that I work with.  Since I can no
longer run Linux on this computer (as described in a recent posting),
I am very glad to have an OpenSolaris-derived operating system that
functions, and functions well, on it.  So, perhaps you will now be
able to imagine that which was for you, until now, unimaginable.
