Sun's corporate strategy
Saw this gem on Fake Steve Jobs
I have to admit, I thought the Sun announcement that they were shipping Windows was mighty bizarre. Isn't part of the point of their Niagara chip to take advantage of kernel level modifications and allow the Java VM to spin up tons of threads efficiently? Why have two directions so unrelated? Meanwhile, they changed their stock symbol to JAVA... to let us know that they're the Java guys?
I think Sun is just throwing a bunch of shit at the wall and hoping something sticks before their server revenue runs dry and they're completely hosed.
