I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 on VMWare, assigning 40GB HDD and 1GB RAM. Ubuntu 9.10 is much faster than previous version.
Compile and Install
First, installing Go. Create ~/bin/ directory and add that to PATH. Then follow the instruction on http://golang.org/doc/install.html I didn't have any issue at all.
After compiling Go lang, in $GOROOT directory, there are documents, samples, and syntax highlighting files for a few editors. I use VIM, and installed $GOROOT/misc/vim/go.vim file. Copy this file into ~/.vim/ directory. And edit ~/.vimrc file:
let mysyntaxfile = "/home/MY_USER/.vim/go.vim" syntax on set nu set ai set tabstop=4 set ruler set laststatus=2 set showmode set expandtab let loaded_matchparen=1(First two lines are for go lang.)
Documents, Tutorials, Sample code
In $GOROOT/doc, the documents -- tutorial, document on Go memory, specification, FAQ, Go Course (day1-3) PDFs, effective go, and sample code are all there. No need to download from the site separately.
... More on Go lang later.

Played with the examples on Ubuntu. Compiles fine, up and running in no time. Too bad it doesn't have Windows or Sparc Solaris versions yet.
Anyhow, I need to test further, but syntax looks great, threading model looks good, garbage collection looks fine too. Need to play around with it more...
2. http://sbcl.sourceforge.net/platform-table.html - SBCL
3. Lisp in a box = emacs+common lisp+SLIME, on WIndows, http://gigamonkeys.com/lispbox/#download
4. Allegro CL Free Express Edition, http://www.franz.com/downloads/
This is a free version, but I think it's a bit overkill for Lisp beginner. Free version has a limit, e.g. heap size 60MB max.
5. Scheme, http://www.plt-scheme.org/
6. Use Clojure plugin Eclipse
7. Use Clojure plugin for NetBeans, http://enclojure.org/
8. New Lisp, http://www.newlisp.org/

Sparc Solaris workstations were dream machines when I was in school. It was fast, reliable, and very expensive. When Sun introduced the models using PC components with affordable price, I was so glad and bought one soon as it was available. I bought a Blade 100 in 2001, and I'm still using it running Solaris 9. (10 was too heavy for that machine.)
I recently checked Sun.com for Sparc workstation/desktop page and found that they pulled out all Sparc based workstations from their web site.
It's sad to see that Sparc based workstation/desktops are no longer produced. :'-(
