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.
