I have a SPARC-station 20 at work, and we will soon be phasing it out.
I already know that Redhat distributes a version of Linux that runs on
SPARC CPUs .... and I'm fairly confident that the SS-20 is supported.
I'm thinking about buying it from the company.
What I'm after are reports of performance of Linux running on a
SPARC-station 20 (32MB). Is it going to be any faster than my P-100
(16MB) at home?? I do quite a bit of development in C, and I'm now
learning to write X apps ... so I'll mostly be running
compilers/de*s, (plus Netscape, and PPP to my provider) if that's
Is there a web page with this information already summarized?
Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
