Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Oracle today announced Oracle Solaris 11.1, delivering over 300 new performance and feature enhancements to the Oracle Solaris 11 product family." This stuff goes way over my head.

Still no tower/notebook models

A 15" notebook is probably asking too much, but it would be nice if Oracle offered a single processor tower model, or at least a standard ATX motherboard with processor, so we could build our own system. Even if people did not use Solaris, Oracle would still get a hardware sale.

Engineering those systems is not free, it costs money. The market size for said systems is not large enough for Oracle to bother, since the number of orders would likely not offset the production/design costs. Oracle is in business in order to make money, and they seem to be exceedingly good at it.

Sun used to have them.

At least in the US, you could get Toshiba laptops with Solaris pre-installed.

I remember seeing them on the online shop.

I think Tadpole still makes ruggedized notebooks with SPARC chips.

But really, SPARC on the desktop has been dead for a while.
