Since when is a "Win2k Advanced Server host" a mainframe? :)
That aside, though, no, it doesn't seem odd at all. It's
certainly The Right Thing To Do, WRT administrative overhead,
and maintenance/repair cost.

Strange, possibly that corporate america is starting to do
the right thing. That's never happened before, to my knowledge.
