Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

Sun compiler

Since 64 bit support is rather young in gcc it may have been more fair to use Sun's compiler for the tests.

Unless things have changed recently I believe that you can demo Sun's c compilers without buying them.
