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.

RE[7]: Sun is even busier

Member since:

SPARC-based workstation from Sun, simply because many, including myself, have a SPARC workstation that badly needs replacing (my aging Ultra 5). Now, for what do I use an UltraSPARC?

And how many of you are there?

I want UltraSPARC workstations from Sun because they do not die. They do not break. They are as solid as a rock.

Good for you. The vast majority of Sun's new customers do not now buy SPARC though.

But do you really think they would go through ALL the trouble of setting up, designing

Done it before.

Go fool yourself, Segedendum. The rest of us ain't buying it.

It's alright. I know you don't understand this, and neither do Sun.
