It depends.  They came in a variety of speeds, I think 300Mhz to
450Mhz or so.  Faster than intel machines of same Mhz, and better
disk I/O than most PC class machines of the era.

Vore, the current sparc buildd, is a 300Mhz Ultra 30.

I was recently asked about providing a Sparc machine for a Debian
project.  I didn't have that fast of a machine to offer.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
