Sooo, how many other people have come here lately because they are ready 
to bail on Solaris?  Ooops, I mean Oracle??? :(

>From what I can see so far, it looks like FreeBSD has solid and still 
healthy support for Sparc platforms?  I'm trying to decide where to jump 
to, since Oracle seems like it's accellerating toward death for Solaris as 
I've come to gladly know it over the last 5 years or so.  Does anyone want 
to email me their opinion on using FreeBSD on Sun hardware?  I've got 4 
Sunfire 280R's that I've been planning on putting into service for the 
next 5 years or so..
