    I always take hardware recommendations 15 year-old /. kiddies. Sun isn't doomed as I think many of the corporations who move to Linux will regret it and move back.

    • Are any of his claims false? Have you gone to lately and done some pricing? I have, and it's not pretty. If Linux is so terrible, why is Sun offering it on some of their low-end servers?

      Now, at least Sun seems to have gotten a bit of a clue with the lower end server market with the likes of the V60x (which I *might* consider). However, most of their hardware falls into the "huh?" category. Let's take the 280R server as a case in point:

      • Dual 1.2 GHZ UltraSparc III (8 mb cache)
      • 8 GB RAM
      • Dual 7
      • If cost were the only thing driving the market everyone would have switched by now. Solaris is solid as is the hardware. I wouldn't want air traffic control running on a cheapo PC with linux just because it was the cheapest thing going. Sun will be around for quite some time as will Apple.
