Ultra5 Revival

Posted by Ben Rockwood on Jan 23, 2004

OS News has put up an article by Tony Bourke in which he reviews his aging and forgotten Sun Ultra5. This is the begining of a series of articles he’s writing about the system, including reviews of various BSD’s on the box, and investigating the myth that 32bit binaries are slower on UltraSparc. While it might not be of much interest to old-time Sun folks, with all the buzz about Athlon64 its a good reminder that many of the 64bit questions aren’t new ones.
