SUNW a better DELL? September 13, 2007

Box MoverAs you might have seen, SUNW just striked a deal with MSFT. One topic that didn’t make much noise but that was pretty interesting was the cross-support for virtualized environments (i.e. running Windows VMs on top of Solaris for example). That’s pretty good.

However, the part I found pretty weak was the one around SUNW acting as a Windows OEM on its hardware. That just sounds as an attempt to look like a better DELL. What a mission… I thought it would have been much more interesting to see them support Windows on their briliant Niagara CPU by developing a new Windows’ HAL. But then you would have to recompile applications or provide an emulator… for which market size?…

Nah, you are right SUNW, you’d better stick to the honorable mission of trying to be a better DELL.

Onward,

Sacha
