11. Linux on SPARC: 2 kernels.

Actually Linux on SPARC architecture comes in two flavors:

  • A 32 bits kernel for the Sun SPARC, Super SPARC, Micro SPARC and Hyper SPARC Processors.
  • A 64 bits kernel for UltraSPARC based computers.
In both case most applications run in 32 bit ( 32 bit userland ). There is a comprehensive FAQ on UltraLinux's website.
