Yes-and-no. I've used various versions of NetBSD on Ultra 5 and Ultra 10
systems for a few years now (starting with 1.6, then 2.0, 3.1, and
a slightly outdated -current).
Overall it works very well - *but*
- programs that use threads tend to crash (sore point for me:
milter-greylist) - supposedly this has been fixed in -current due to
the move to a new threading model, but I haven't tried that yet.
- SMP doesn't work yet.
Right now, I've moved to Solaris10 for my primary e-mail server (U420R
with 4x450 MHz CPUs), because I want the SMP and I need the threading
for the mail milters. And ZFS is nice. But I still don't like Solaris
(too many things suck - and other things have developed too far away from
"the unix way" to feel comfortable), and consider this a stopgap.
