Ditto for the Ultra 1 and Ultra 2.  I have an Ultra 2 Creator3D running  
Solaris 10, but I haven't had a chance to try anything 3D on the  
Creator3D.  From what I've heard about the Creator3D, it doesn't have much  
memory on it, so I'm probably not going to be running GLQuake on it.  Plus  
the OpenGL subsystem in Solaris was something you had to pay for, and I'm  
running Solaris 10 on the Free RTU license.  Then again, Sun opened up  
their development tools for download last I heard.
