curious about the base price of a sun t1000 server



http://www.sun.com/servers/coolthreads/t1000/specifications.jsp

They are going to support Ubuntu and I was wondering if this was going to be a "cost effective" solution compared to a
"x86" box.

I am just looking for a bare ballpark price.  

The processor is a screamer :)

At the top of the page you posted, hover over Products, then click on Servers under that.

That page lists the  sun servers with a "Price and Buy" link.  Click on that link, and it allows you to get a price for a server configured they way that you want.

If you are in the education business, Sun has discounts that do not show up on that page...

The price is depends on where you are, contact your local Sun office for details.

For Education institute, you might be able to get very good discount for Sun
boxes.

Do I feel stupid :)

Back in the day I do not think they posted prices on their web site.  I remember back in 98 calling sun for base prices and they would not give them to me.  I was a small fish  : (

Judging by the information I have now these servers take up almost no space, half the electic and run on free linux and free apps.  I think the people that get these will run them until they just plain die of old age ( servers, not the people ).

Thanks!

I would suggest runnung Solaris rather than linux, since it is safer from hackers.  Script kiddies attack linux boxes on a regular basis, but the scripts and root kits they use do not work on Solaris.

It is also free...
