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.

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.

The Fujitsu Primepower servers are serious hardware, and run Solaris. I just can't fathom that there would be "quirks". These are beasts that scale up to 128 CPUs and cost millions of buxors. I'm just saying that it wuld be good to determine what exactly are those rumors saying.

So, the US IIe is fabbed in Taiwan? Makes sense, and I guess next up is the US IIi.
