That particular model of Sun is just a boring Wintel box with no historical
interest or charm, and dying is perhaps the best thing it did. The only vaguely
useful part is the Sun badge on the front of the case, which you can pry off.

The CPU is slow and power-hungry. The motherboard has compatibility problems
with some perfectly ordinary PCI cards that work fine in other machines. The
case is huge, but has very little useful space for disks. It's a right lemon of
a machine.

I find better kit dumped in the street. That's where my Ultra 20 M2 went five
years ago. Good riddance.
