I'll paraphrase a quote I saw on Nekochan and say that the plural of
'anecdote' isn't 'data', but I'll throw out more subjective opinion...

I like OpenBSD on my Sparcs. Fast, minimal install footprint (add the things
you want, not tear out the things you don't) and supports all my old stuff.
Check the compatibility list, and if you are good, it works well.

My 2 cents,


PS - Netra X1 is on the list for OpenBSD/sparc64
