Also, the CPU limit is now <2 CPUs. It used to be more (there *was* a time
when the licence for Solaris 8 *was* free of cost for home users <= 2
CPUs, but that's at least 2 years ago - and is the reason why I do have
one U10 with Solaris), but these days, you even have to buy a license
for a SparcStation 10, theoretically...

Cheerio,
