Seconded here. I ran OBSD on a SPARC 20 for my web and mail server for
years, and still run a SPARC 4 and a SPARC 5 with OBSD for firewalls.
The only problems I have had have been overheating in the dual-cpu 20
and a bad disk drive in one of the others.
I have used 3.x and 4.x on SPARCs with no software problems at all.
