As anyone done performance benchmark testing with solaris sparc/intel linux.
I once read a post here, which had benchmarking test results for using
different filesystem like xfs, ext3, ext2, ufs etc. i couldn't find that
link anymore and google is failing on me, so anyone have the link handy.

Personally, I've been unimpressed by Dell/Xeon; I think the Sun might do 
better than you think, comparitively.    On all the Dell servers I've used
far, I've not seen performance that comes even close to the hardware specs.
