I'm not arguing with your perception of the quality of SARA. I'm simply pointing out that your statement that "Passport was the one before Sara right????" was WRONG:rolleyes:

No!

Passport ran on Motorola Systems and SARA ran on Scientific America (now CISCO) systems. Navigator was an attempt to come up with a corporate (Time Warner) wide system for both.
