This may be a stupid question but you never know with proprietary equipment.
We trying to build an internal development Ubuntu Cloud and looking for cheap hardware to use. It looks like there are some cheap refurbished Cisco MCS 7845 I2 K9 servers on ebay. If we get them can they be repurposed and loaded with Ubuntu 10.4? According to the specs on the Cisco site, it's just a server, I don't see any proprietary hardware on it, but I might be wrong.
So did anyone have any experience with a situation like this?
