Sun's very simple strategy.

I don't get it. Why do people make it seem like Sun's strategy is so difficult. Sun's strategy is very simple. It is to sell you what you want. If you want an x86 system, they will sell you that system. If you want to run Linux on it, they will allow you to do it. If you want to run Windows on it, they will let you do it. If you want to use Solaris, they will let you do that to. If you want a behemoth of a system, they can sell you that too. They have their own products and solutions, but if you don't want to run their product, they aren't going to force you to use them. It is about freedom of choice. They will let you run your enterprise how you want to and will provide you with the capability of using Sun products if you wish.
