Oracle and SUN Engadget got the chance to sit down with Jonathan Schwartz, the pony-tailed CEO of Sun Microsystems. Being the gadget blog that they are, Engadget asked Schwartz about the long-missing JavaFX Mobile platform Sun has promised, Java on the iPhone, and competing with Microsoft as an open source vendor.

As a casual bystander, I can't help but notice that while you were careful to point out a metric of raw performance and performance per watt, you carefully avoided talking about performance per dollar.

Edited the previous comment:

But here are the costs.
The Sun box costs $39K.
The HP box About $32K running RHEL and HP virtualization Citrix Xen.
VMware ESX is $13K more.
