Ubuntu Dapper will have a SPARC Niagara version

Great news for the community and Sun ! Sun and Canonical announced that Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support), the upcoming release of the widely popular GNU/Linux distribution, will support the UltraSPARC T1 processor on Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers.

"Ubuntu is arguably one of the most important – if not the most important – GNU/Linux distribution on the planet and will soon blaze new trails in support for SPARC-based servers," said John Fowler, executive vice-president, Systems, Sun Microsystems. "The availability of both Solaris and Linux-based operating systems on the Niagara platform will further expand our lead in delivering chip multi-threaded innovation and choice to customers."
