Did this ever rake over some old neural connections!  I recall
Fuji-Xerox printers using Solaris 8 (and actually found something
still online: http://www.fujixerox.co.jp/eng/company/headline/2001/1221_dp500dps.html)
and I recall seeing Ultra10 OEMed to Xerox but never SB2500s.

Off topic, I recall seeing Xerox-branded G4s on Ebay but no clue about
what they were running.
