I've managed to miss Sun's Galaxy and Aquarius launch,
but today at work I learned that the Sun Fire X2100 Server


starts at about 700 EUR (no drives, no DVD, no IPMI, 1x Opteron 146,
1x512 MB unbuffered ECC PC3200, but it can apparently handle non-ECC
as well).

IPMI 1.5 module and sliding rails are about 135 EUR.

Have any of you first-hand experience with this hardware?
Any caveats? I don't see any warts so far.
