Nor do they run with nVidia's 3D-accelerated binary drivers. Or can
the "nv" driver handle 3D on the Ultra 20's video card?
Though coming up with a modern elitist machine that has all-free drivers
and halfway-decent 3D (for compiz/beryl) on at least three DVI monitors
seems to be an exercise in frustration if not futility.
(As a former Sun admin and Ultra 10 user, it's very strange to read of
a "Sun Ultra 20" machine that has an AMD rather than SPARC processor.)
