Oracle and SUN A few weeks ago, I stubbed my toe on my old Sun Ultra 5 as it sat there lifeless and unused in my apartment. Once my primary desktop, the envy of my geek friends, and a way to woo the ladies, its glory days have long since passed. As much as I would like to let it live out its days looking sexy and taking up space, I live on the island of Manhattan, where space is a premium. Since I can't charge it rent, I decided I'd better use it or lose it. But what to use it for? What operating system would I run on it? Solaris? What about Linux? FreeBSD? NetBSD? OpenBSD? They all run on the SPARC platform, so I thought why not do a quick review.

Source for RAM

I've used Rocky Mountain Ram in the past for PC, Mac and Sun memory and never had an issue with any of it. I'm not sure how their prices would compare with Sun memory on eBay, but it's MUCH more affordable than memory directly from Sun.

NOTE: I am not affiliated with Rocky Mountain Ram in any way other than as a satisfied customer.
