Solaris on x86 is a royal pain in the ass.

Both Sun Blade systems are good workstations - that's what they were
designed to be.
If you want the Sun Blade 1000 to be a server, get a Sun Fire 280R. Same
machine (same motherboard, even), rackmountable, redundant supplies.
If you want the Sun Blade 100 to be a server, get a Netra X1. Same CPU,
rackmountable (1RU), and cheap.
If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves
