I really can’t comment on the current state, but in 2018 I spent quite a bit of time configuring and diagnosing both mach64 and the XVR-100. Summarised in the blog. I don’t think things will have improved.

I can only comment on mach64 on 32 bit Sparc, it was working fine. The desktop was reasonably responsive. About as responsive as Solaris, so quite good. I didn’t get the xvr-100 until afterwards.
