I have been running Mathematica2.2 on a PB180c for quite a while.
Most of the time I am running both the front end and the kernel on the
mac. When I need more speed I run one or more remote kernel(s) on a some unix
boxe(s): Sun's or HP's. It works very well, even multiple remote kernels
from home (using a SLIP connection and the Express Modem).

Note:without SLIP I have not been able to use a single 2.2 remote kernel 
from home; before that (without SLIP) I had no trouble running a 2.1 
remote kernel.
