I've never actually touched an Ultra 30, in fact I don't think I've 
ever seen one.  I'd love a nice Ultra 1E/200 for OpenBSD, I imagine 
it would rock on it.  It's pretty nice on a Sparc 5/70.  The nice 
thing about OpenBSD is it's pretty light on RAM usage.  I like 
running on S-Bus systems as I have a bunch of 4-port 100Mbit cards. 
Plus they squeeze into a small space.

I've run 10 at home briefly, but for the most part at work we stopped 
at 8, with a few systems running 9.  Now we're mostly Linux & 
Windows. :-(
