Prices a dropping like a brick.
Just last week I gave away 3x Ultra 10's (it was whatever 400-ishMHz
processor was in the U10) to co-workers who want to learn Solaris. At
least one of the boxes was a Creator 3D.
It's nice because these are the boxes I was root on earlier in my UNIX
career but was never allowed to "learn" on. So my Solaris experience
was pretty negligible despite all the Sun boxes I was responsible for.
Now I can finally afford to have some of that same hardware from the dot
com boom and not worry about breaking some production app. :)
