We are interested in doing an AXP port ... and we have a rack in a well
connected DC in Chicago, IL ... so if we can get a good machine or two
there, we can probably make this kind of thing happen.

As far as Sparc is concerned, we do have a machine that and I will be
working on CentOS-5.0 for Sparc as soon as CentOS-4.5 i386/x86_64 is out
the door.
