If he sent them back 28 years, probably fine!
Notice: The hardware of the Sun3 doesn't have any problems
with y2k. The software is it.
On the other hand i'd assume that even under SunOS 3.5 the
date change to 2000 would only raise some quirks and show
some anomalities but the machine wouldn't come to a grinding
For SunOS 4.1.1 i can speak: There are a handful of programs
and two libc functions that have y2k problems. The kernel
is fine. Since SunOS 4.1.1 uses shared libraries, it is
not too difficult to repair all the y2k problems.
You can find my y2kpatches on the Sun3/3x-Archive.
NetBSD has no problems with 2000.
