Gotta remember that Solaris is discontinued on the i386 arch.  Nothing will

    I think that $800 is well over priced, I might as well have thought to
do this sort of stuff with Solaris its absolutely free really. I guess that
any really bothered System Administrator could be build a HA cluster or a
Beuwolf cluster easily.
