Sun's Orion pricing

Sun's Orion pricing expected by June | CNET News.com

Main points -

Employee headcount based pricing
Sun moving away from their own hardware platform, atleast in the entry and mid-server level:

"Neil Knox, executive vice president of Sun's volume system group and the leader of its lower-end server business, said at the conference that Sun is willing to do just that. Although sales of Intel-based lower-end Sun servers will likely cannibalize some of Sun's UltraSparc-based business, that alternative is better than losing sales to others, Knox said.

"If you don't do it, somebody else is going to do it to you," Knox said. "
