General Unix A new study on the major players in the Unix server market has declared IBM the clear customer favorite and brought to light some serious issues with Sun Microsystems' product line. Most alarmingly for Sun, the company appears to have lost its cachet as the dominant Unix player and done so while alienating customers. Sun finished last in almost every one of the Gabriel Consulting Group survey's categories, spanning technology performance, customer satisfaction and software tools.

You must not have used any of their new Opteron line. Perfect design, awesome performance and reasonable price. Previously I loved the Proliant line, far better than IBM/HP (before they bought compaq)/Dell because of shitty physical design. Must say tho, we like the Sun servers just as much, if not more
