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.

It's not confusing at all. Sun sell workstations which
are SPARC or Opteron based. You buy whay you need. Your
statments are nothing more than negative spin. I mean,
most people by computers to run something called
software. This tends to have a bearing on the type of
hardware that you want to run.
