FreeBSD and OpenBSD both work for me. I'll have to go back and try Xorg on
FreeBSD again using another card.

The other option is OpenSPARC and that means time and money that most people
I didn't come to this list because I had a SB1000. I used FreeBSD on amd64,
then i386, then on PowerPC, then on SPARC. I did the same with OpenBSD.
