   While I've turned into quite the Solaris fan in recent years (wake 
the kids, phone the neighbors), I'd never EVER run it on anything 
slower than an Ultra1.  With OSs like NetBSD around which is blindingly 
fast on Sun4C and Sun4M machines, there's just very little point.  And 
if you need Solaris, an Ultra1 is, what, a $40 affair on eBay?
