I have a (probably similar) Sun Ultra 20 M2 system. I have also noticed
that several other list members have mentioned in passing that they also
own similar units.
As these are x86 systems, I am curious if anyone has performed a
motherboard/CPU upgrade on an Ultra 20? Are there any oddities or
particular strange parts in an Ultra 20, vs any other generic x86 based
system that would preclude an upgrade?
I hope that this is a completely stupid/obvious question, but this is my
first/only x86 system that I have had in over a decade.
TIA for any replies,
