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 ;)
