RE: Wall St. Journal, Sept 3, Page 1...



fixed

Not only that but it says it's SPARC server is over 3x as fast as the
fastest IBM pseries...

Oh the fun is afoot... :)

The interesting thing here is, Solaris is probably the only TRUE full
spectrum, cradle to grave, desktop to high end corporate server o/s out
there. Solaris runs on your intel desktop (gee, there's an idea!), it runs
on midsize server (the kind you run windows server stuff on) and it runs on
HUGE servers...oh well... :)

Hi Don

Let me guess.... an offering for Sun box with an integrated/bundled Oracle
database ?

Unfortunately I have no way of looking at the WSJ down here in NZ

Uh, anyone happen to read the ad in the bottom right of the front page of
WSJ on 9/3???



Looks like the fun is starting.just as expected. Just keep in mind that an
estimated 95% of all pSeries boxes run Oracle and Oracle applications and
that Oracle is IBM's biggest pSeries business partner. :-)



I think I'm going to enjoy this one. :-) IBM may decide there's reason to
remember they have a box called AS/400 :-)
