Debian GNU/Linux No Longer Supports the SPARC Hardware Architecture

Therefore, support for the SPARC architecture has been purged from the unstable, experimental, and jessie-updates channels of the Debian GNU/Linux operating system, starting today, July 27, 2015. The removal of the SPARC architecture from Debian GNU/Linux does not mean that the distribution will no longer be installable on modern SPARC64 hardware, which is the next-generation SPARC architecture that supports 64-bit instructions.
