Cringley on Sun

Cringley on IBM , Microsoft and developing plot to rewrite the script for "one ring to rule all" .  Though his predictions are all long shots and long term, his take on Sun is funny -

Their current strategy of selling processing power by the cycle is like a new car dealer renting back seats of cars on the lot to teenagers looking for a place to make out.

Thats why I love this industry, we  never run out of quotable quotes. Now we will wait for Jonathan Schwartz's  response.

Jonathan Schwartz summed up nicely though. That vision does smack of 80s thinking. Will be reading your thoughts on Solaris open source experience. Brij
