Actually, openSUSE is very good OS and is more convenient than Solaris.

So if you have powerful multi-CPU SPARC Server and want a convenient OS,
openSUSE is the only way to go.

This way you can reutilize Sun Servers as Linux Workstations or Servers.

But this would require a very serious rebuild of the whole distro.

Question:
How much time it would require for 1 Linux expert to port all openSUSE from
x86 to SPARC ? (including installer & full FTP repository) provided he know
both architectures & works full-time.

1 week, 1 month, 1 year ?
