I've not used any of these but:
1) The Ultra 25 is UltraSPARC IIIi based.  This CPU is not supported
   by FreeBSD as Sun will not release necessary documentation.
2) Sun states they support both RHEL and SuSE ES on both the U20 and
   U40 so I would expect they are stable and all hardware supported,
   at least on those Linuxes.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
