I agree, but stuff like browser plugins may only be available for
Solaris SPARC, Linux x86 and Windoze. For that reason, I run Solaris on
my SPARC workstations.
For other purposes (like firewall, web server, etc.) I think OpenBSD on
SPARC is an excellent choice, not only for the obvious security reasons,
but because it's lightweight (great for old machines) and solid.
