Submission + - Of the Love of Oldtimers - Dusting off a Sun Fire V1280 Server

vikingpower writes: "Today, I decided to acquire a refurbished Sun Fire V1280 server, with 8 CPUs. The machine will soon or may already belong to a certain history of computing. This project is not about high-performance computing, much more about lovingly dusting off and maintaining a piece of hardware considered quirky by 2013 standards. And . Now the question creeps to mind: what software would Slashdotters run on such a beast, once it is upgrade to 12 procs and, say, 24 Gb of RAM ?"
