I've personnaly used it and it runs emacs, apache, ssh, X, gimp,
mplayer (no sound...), etc. But yeah it's not perfect.

Solaris is often called Slowlaris. Not without reason. I have a couple
of old Sun workstations at work, and I installed Debian on them.
Also does Solaris provide this on Intel hardware!? I really don't
think so. If any of the hard disks fail on my intel computers I just
replace it with a cheap IDE disk. The SCSI disks in my sun computers
are probably worth more than the rest of the old computers themselves.
