You could buy a Mac Pro, Solaris 10 runs really nicely in Parallels
if you have sufficient RAM, as long as you don't mind sacrificing
your OpenGL support. That said OS X itself supports a large rage of
Open Source stuff so you wouldn't be totally out of it. I haven't had
success booting Solaris 10 as yet but as and when Sun start rolling
out Intel hardware then EFI support will roll out with Solaris 10 at
the same time.
I know, it wasn't what you wanted to hear, but I had to drop it in as
a very satisfied Mac Pro user :o)
