Oh, I've always used to thought that "sun" stands for another, more
generic hardware too. Vincent, thanks for your welcome to the Sun-world.

Am I going to learn assembly for the sparc CPU? Cool.

Vincent, do you mean different sparc CPUs are using different assembly

I see there exist some Debian package on the net  called liblwp2, but
apt-get on my box doesn't know about it. :-(

pthread primitives? Hm, reading what Wine src file should I start from?
