Death of Sparc Solaris Workstation?

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. :'-(
