Back in the glory days of Sun Microsystem, they were visionary at that time when the Ethernet and TCP/IP was emerging as the universal network topology and protocol standard.  Sun adopted the marketing slogan "the network is the computer" and wisely so.  That is the way I have viewed computing from the time I started architecting holistic networks.  It isn't about a standalone machine performing a specific purpose, rather it is a cooperative service that ultimately satisfies a human need. 

Through the years, I have been successful in tailoring an architecture that required few administrators to administrate hundreds of computers running multiple hardware and OS platforms serving both high-end technical and business end user.
