Is this the end of sparc hardware? I know Oracle has been supporting Linux/sparc developement, including a distribution: https://oss.oracle.com/projects/linux-sparc/.

Fujitsu went with ARM instead of SPARC for their new super computer[1][2]. It might be another indicator.

Honestly I hope so. Good riddance. SPARC is strange compared to other RISC architectures. I was never a fan of the register windows (and associated overflows) and the global/out/local/in register types. Reading the ASM was nasty in my experience.
