I have potato installed on a sparc 1 and it runs great. I also ran a 25
client irc server on a 1+. Linux is faster than Solaris on these systems,
but they are still only good for single service type applications, which
sounds like what you want to do. They are very solid though (36 days
uptime on the sparc 1 so far, the sparc 1+ last I looked had 82 days).
