    Has perhaps a significant RTU license cost and the OP does not wish to run
    an unlicensed system.

    $20,000 (undiscounted), I think.

    Linux and NetBSD both should support e4500. Linux SMP is probably "better"
    but it's probably more buggy.

    You really want to run Solaris on this hardware, though.

    /fc

    No.

    Solaris is licensed on the system *capacity*, not the number of installed
    or running CPUs. e4500 falls into the 16CPU slot.

    Yes, that small detail slipped my mind. $20K is correct.
