But then again they both suck compared to the BSD’s. (btw. I use a Ultra10 ws with Sol8 at work) regards /jens 2003-11-26 10:13 pm Even before the merger was Compaq losing shares to IBM and HP so it is not an effect of the two companies merging. Sun have executed poorly the last 3 years (some might argue more but Sun was doing ok before the .com boom). No clear vision at all with their unique mindshare (Java & Solaris). They do look a bit more focused recently but that might change … again 2003-11-26 11:00 pm In other news… SCO announces plan to sue Hewlett Packard 2003-11-27 12:05 am Sun has been given (a somewhat unjustified) blackeye by Wall Street analysts and the like. They have pretty much written them off as a dead company, and I think that has a big effect. They will have to strike back big to overcome all the negative press. J 2003-11-27 4:23 am It’s good to see the advancement of UNIX in the “modern era”. I just wonder how Darl McBride’s temper-tantrum will stifle this progression. 2003-11-27 5:45 am They were supposed to work alot of Tru64 into HP-UX. Lets see how that goes.
