Sun Hardware Donation
Sun has donated a SunBlade 1000 with
2x600mhz SPARCIII processors and a Dell Precision 2650 with 2 x 3GHz
Xeon Processors to the NetBSD Project, in order to support
development of pkgsrc on the world's best operating system,
Sun's Solaris (sparc and x86).
See Jan Schaumann's posting
for the full announce.
(1. no, the machines won't be used to run NetBSD or act as
development machines other than for pkgsrc bulk builds; and
2. yes, I think Solaris
is superior to NetBSD in many ways :)
