Possibly. It looks like apok has been replaced with what used to be slappy (for some reason the motd hasn’t changed yet - I sent a note to Dev/Admin about that).

This changes regularly. Lately, for instance, we’ve been focusing on increasing RAM on existing servers (to a large degree, memory seems to have more of an effect on server stability/well-being than CPU speed).
Last I heard, new shared hosting machines are dual-Xeons running at 2.3 Ghz per processor. Memory is usually at 1.5-2 GB of RAM and 2-4 GB of swap. This could be out of date, though, as our admins are always bumping up specs.
