Most of them are, and the ones that aren't will be soon. Solaris is a  
different case, I simply hadn't cared until Sun gave us a Thumper to  
play with. :)

At least one of the old "Mountain View" machines will be reborn as a  
VM host, we'll see what system resources are left once I get the  
current slaves ported over. There are concurrency issues...VMs are  
great for machines with light utilization, but not if the utilization  
happens on every machine at once, as is the case when someone checks  
code into Tahoe. :)
