The Ubuntu development team has announced an Ubuntu version that will run on Sun Microsystem's much-vaunted Niagara processor.
Fabio Di Nitto announced the news by email today: "Thanks to extraordinary efforts from David Miller, the Ubuntu SPARC team and the entire Linux-on-SPARC community, it should now be possible to test out the complete Ubuntu installer and environment on Niagara machines. As of today, the unofficial community port of Ubuntu to SPARC should be installable on Niagara, and we would love to hear reports of success or failure (and love them more if they come with patches for performance or features )."
