Oracle and SUN Someone has found the manual to Sun's Ultra 40 - which hasn't even been announced yet. The machine clearly is the bigger brother of the Ultra 20. It apparently sports two AMD Opteron processors (single or dualcore; 2.0Ghz or faster; 1MB cache), eight PC3200 DIMM slots (2GB per DIMM), and more. It will come pre-loaded with Solaris 10 (obviously) but RedHat/SUSE Linux Enterprise/Windows are also supported, in both 32bit and 64bit.

You can make a cheaper computer than Dell? I"d love to see that - because everytime I've looked at both sides of the equation, the home built kit aways ends up turning out to be atleast a few hundred dollars more than the equally spec'ed out Dell.

Btw, I do think the default is a dual core - but the option is give I guess as not all need or what the power that a quad core could bring, and the licencing mess that follows it as well.
