Oracle and SUN This past year has been a breakthrough for Sun for both their Linux and Solaris products. The most intriguing news of all is possibly the challenge Sun poses to Microsoft with their Desktop Initiative announced a couple of months ago. We spoke to Bill Moffitt, Product Line Manager of the Solaris Lifecycle, about Linux, the desktop and Solaris. Update: Bill Moffitt replies on our forums.

Hey Matthew, I read your comment in the other thread, and I must say I tend to agree that Sun should consider dropping TI and going for the Taiwanese fabbers. And on a tangent, did you see/read about the new Fujitsu Sparcs? Seem to be somewhat faster than the Sun Sparcs, but of course, MHz is not the whole story.


The downside I have heard is that there are some quirks between Solaris and non-SUN hardware. I'm not too sure about that rumour as I tend to keep with SUN hardware 100% of the time when purchasing Sparc hardware, so, I can't confirm or deny the rumour.

As for Taiwan fabbers, they've (SUN) FINALLY! started pushing off a small about, apparently the Ultra Sparc IIe, however, IHMO, they should push the whole lot off.
