Getting involved with ultrasparc port (possibly)
Greetings, ultrasparc developers ;-)
I'm looking into buying my next home computer (my P75 is getting old, and I
decided not to go with netwinder for now), and considering I'd like to help
with one of debian ports, UltraSparc is an option. I remember hearing that
Kachinatech was going to sell Ultrasparcs at a discount for debian developers.
I'd like to know what that discount would be . I'd like to have a computer
for under $3000, is that possible? Alternatively, can I get a used ultrasparc
somewhere for that price? Please note I haven't looked at the prices yet, so
I have no idea how realistic my ideas are :).
I've been with Debian for about 2 years, and have been a developer almost that
long. I like to think I know a lot about debian packaging and all the nuances
that come with it, although I haven't tried hacking dpkg yet (that seems to be
the ultimate feat that noone ever comes back from). If ultrasparc is my
primary computer, I will be sure to help the ultrasparc port a lot, because I
would want everything to work right ;-). This is in part the reason I want to
So how about that cheap ultrasparc for me? ;-)
Proudly running Debian Linux! Linux vs. Windows is a no-Win situation....
