    There was a posting in some days ago: one man
    told he opened the PIX box and guess what was inside? Yep, you are
    right. The generic chinese PC motherboard with Pentium CPU.
    Not just some Pentium-based piece of hardware, but _PC_ motherboard.
    IDE controller and some other things were removed but..
    Then, did anybody try to take a closer look on the software?
    I guess (if the assumption that PIX software is an IOS derivative is
    right) porting IOS to the PC was not as hard as one might think
    (assuming that IOS was really written in gcc as rumors say): not easy
    but not harder than porting from one cisco hardware platform to another
    (some ciscos are (were) actually a m68k-based _computer_ with nearly
    no tricky hardware things implemented and others have nearly nothing
    common with first ones)
    ..i am just curious. It would be funny to see IOS running on PC ;)
