BSD on Sparc

I have a Sunfire T2000 - a late 2008 model, "new" never opened, still in factory sealed box. I would like to use something besides the solaris 10 that's preloaded on it. I'm wondering if FreeBSD or OpenBSD might be a good choice for it. Has anybody had good success with BSD on one of these in production use ?

Mine aren't that recent of models, unfortunately, but I have 2 sparcs at home (Ultra2 and Ultra5). OpenBSD on sparc is about as close to "stability zen" as you can get.

I'm heavily biased, though, so take what I say with a grain of salt =)
