the price isn't bad for all that stuff. The SS2 works well I've several beside
some SS4, 5 and 20. Just consider to replace the HD with a bigger one. I'm sure
Solaris 7 is a bit to hangry with hw resources to run it usefully. I run Linux on
the SS2. I think, after some testings, you need at least a SPARC Classic ar
better a SS5. It's possible to find some for less than 600USD w/o 17" color
