I have never owned any sun4m machines as this quad ss20 is my first.

I am completely amazed and stunned at the speed of its 4   50mhz processors.

using make -j4 it runs and compiles quite nicely and is responsive:

last pid:  6137;  load averages: 63.20, 28.61, 13.70
86 processes:  66 sleeping, 34 running, 4 on cpu
CPU states:  0.0% idle, 91.0% user,  9.0% kernel,  0.0% iowait,  0.0% swap
Memory: 256M real, 47M free, 220M swap in use, 468M swap free

I have owned several sun big iron ultra sparc boxes and always considered
an inferior brand of sun and not worth my time.   I can see I was wrong..
