Oracle and SUN Engadget got the chance to sit down with Jonathan Schwartz, the pony-tailed CEO of Sun Microsystems. Being the gadget blog that they are, Engadget asked Schwartz about the long-missing JavaFX Mobile platform Sun has promised, Java on the iPhone, and competing with Microsoft as an open source vendor.

Your ignorance is even more telling. Cpus consume more energy at higher clock rates and dissipate more heat.

You're tripping sweetheart. What matters to people is what work gets done in that clock cycle for the amount of power they use and what they paid. It really is that simple.

Oh you are still stuck like a broken record on that article you posted

Yer, because that's a potential Sun customer (you know, money?), and that's what matters to him. As it is, he's looking at performance per watt per dollar and the raw figures just aren't there. Specweb justifies nothing to him.

Read and comprehend first. Then do some research and come up with some real data to the topic at hand. Some up to date data would be very useful.

You're making a huge assumption that Specweb is actually saying something because you have no data yourself, and you've proven yourself totally incapable of explaining it or discussing what's happening.

I wonder why the coolthreads systems are doubling in revenue YoY.

When you've come from nothing doubling is easy. Once again, no exact figures from Sun ;-).

I forgot that you don't live in the real world.

Lay off the crack pipe please.

No more straws???

No you have proven incapable of understanding simple data like two graphs that handily disprove your own statement. Hilariously, what's more you provided the data to support your claims. I would laugh if your feeble attempts at comprehension weren't so sad.

IBM doesn't break down numbers by product lines either. Your point?

IBM makes 50%+ of their revenue from their consulting business. Their power server make a fraction of thier total product revenue. I don't see you calling power dead weight.

Well, I have no idea what you guys are banging on about, but as a result of following your discussion I've come across SmugMug.com, which looks like an excellent photo hosting website, especially for a semipro photographer like myself!

Thanks and keep on arguing!

Doesn't address what was written in the article, or how he would justify a SPARC Coolthreads server.
