I must agree, it has improved a lot the last year or so. I think I have jumped the trigger too fast this time, and I apologize! I have had a lot of difficulties using the web in the past (one thing
was a strange redirector throwing me to a broken mirror site unless I printed the entire "http://www.postgresql.org/index.html"), but most of problems are long gone; I just still remembered them, I
guess... It's a fine and well maintained web site!

Again, I blush out of ignorance. Nope, I use Solaris/Sparc. I misunderstood the Linux/Sparc for linux AND sparc... sorry!

But, http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faq-english.html#1.3 says 

   What Unix platforms does PostgreSQL run on?
   ...
   * linux - Intel i86 Alpha SPARC PPC M68k 

It seems like Linux/Sparc is OK? Does the web say something else elsewhere?
