[Adam asked about Alphas versus Suns for doing Java stuff.]

Solaris emulator: not that I know of.

Alphas are much faster than Sparcs but Java is hardwired to 32-bit and
you probably won't be doing much floating-point so the difference
would not be so great for your work.

I don't know about prices of Suns these days.. crash course anyone?

You could always mix and match!
