    If you mean sparc supports it (kernel, not just X;) then i386 should
    really catch up ;) ... but as you start using multiple displays you'll
    prolly want multiple keyboards and/or mice soon... multiple keyboards
    might be hard as I haven't heard of hardware support for that yet...
    multiple mice shouldn't be that hard ;)
    Anyway using multiple monitors && multiple VCs && multiple keyboards &&
    multiple mice with single machine would rock ;)
