Oracle and Sun taunt IBM with Sparcs


Not sure if the add is too late

I think Larry has seen in the last few quarters less and less profit from SUN and is worried about the next few SUN quarters where more customers will be going somewhere else until the EU regulators are done screwing things up.

To me, the add is like a hail marry pass that might work and satisfy some IT shops, but my IT shop has already put plans on migrating off of SUN equipment (upper management says we can't buy any new SUN hardware ... only new/used parts). I wish that the StorageTek gear was never purchased by SUN since I'm looking at replacing that gear with another vendor. For the SUN servers, they will be migrated to AIX or Linux on HP gear depending on the situation.
