Dapper Drake on Suns Niagra servers, sounds like something good came out of their cooperation. According to Mark it was easy to port ubuntu. Will this mean alot do think? I hope it does. Even though I've never heard of "niagra servers" this might show how easy it is to get Linux to work everywhere.

I've seen benchmarks (and even held an UltraSPARC in my hand :P) of the new SUN gear at CeBIT 2006 in Germany. They are quite serious about it, and in some ways they are much more powerful than AMD Opterons and (at least the old Netburst-based) Xeons.
