i think this is one of those cute ideas that don't stand up to a business

given the exponential growth of the user base and the constant hardware
upgrading people have done to keep up with bill's ever increasing appetite
for cycles, the number of 386's out there has got to be pretty small.
certainly when you consider the likelihood of their deadbeat owners to
spend any money on any sort of upgrade.

sun won't do it.
