How so? I agree with you that we probably won't see too many people on the forums running out to buy SPARCs, but plenty of server CPU's get used for overclocking. Opterons? The server CPU's from Intel and AMD are often no more than more stable versions of thier "desktop use" counterparts, which makes them better for our purposes.

Cant really say they're greater, after all their multi-core chips only run at about 1.2 GHz. Intel's Quad runs 2.66 and its Octo will see similar numbers, probably higher even. Technically, Intel > Sun. (In many more ways than one).
How so? Their architecture is completely different. You should know that comparing clock speeds is the worst way to compare the power (and as should anyone else).

I'm sure there are people on this site interested in IT and server applications, and some architectural changes can lead to the advancement of other technologies.

I never knew there was someone else on the market

There's plenty of "other" CPU makers out there, just not for your typical desktop Windows use. Fujistu, Motorola, Sun, IBM, and even Via (great CPUs) are all out on the market, plus many more whom I'm not readily aware of.
