IIRC there was CentOS 4.6, but I'm not sure. Is it a 'Sun Ultra 5' or a
'SPARCstation 5'?

It is a Sun Ultra 5

Yap, it's nice. If he wants ZFS and maybe wants to become a great
hacker, he may want to have a look at FreeBSD for sparc64; it's not a
first tier architecture, so there maybe some adventures during
installation/use, but it could be worth a try... ;)

Ah, I forgot about FreeBSD.

Nah, they didn't need it for their iPods. Or do they still build
computers (or, 'Mac'-labeled PeeCee hardware)? SCNR.

I think I saw that my local Apple Store did have one computer for sale..maybe more :)
