Wow! I didn't realize that the BMC was again running a full blown Linux
distro!

Only on those Sun servers - a friend who used to work for Sun showed me
this.
Those sun BMCs did more than act as IPMI controllers (ie you could have
virtual CD drivers etc,
though of course other IPMI type controllers can do this)
For Dell, Supermicro, HP etc. etc. I don't know what the Drac/IPMI cards
run.
