Oracle and SUN Ever since news got out that Oracle snapped up Sun Microsystems, a big question mark has been hanging over Sun's SPARC business. Would Oracle kill it off? Sell it? Or would they actually invest in creating a top-to-bottom hardware+software stack, like Apple and Cisco? Oracle's CEO has given the answer. And yes, that's a new category icon up there.

Also, to the person who said "everyone is jumping on the Intel bandwagon", where do you get that from? There's a certain architecture called ARM which would beg to differ with you. No it's not in servers (yet) but it's crtainly doing well in the market.


that was me that said that, and uh, you do realise we are talking bigiron, hpc, massive cpu clusters like the sun fire e25k, 15k, etc and such, not wristwatches. arm is doing great in cellphones but we are not talking about cellphones.
