I've had both Lenny and Sidux installed on my Sparc U30 64 bit.  I
can't guarantee that that shite runs well on it, but stock Debian
appears to run fine.  Now, I'm fiddling with Splack (Slackware for
Sparc), which is interesting.  It's very happy with NetBSD.  fwiw.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
