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.

of course... but even with that in mind, i can get a box with more or less the same specs for less, and from a big brandname vendor, with support and all...

I seriously doubt it, not signifigantly less at any rate. I'd love for you to prove me wrong, but I doubt it will happen. Unlike in the past Suns new AMD based line are very price competative no matter who you compare against.
