Live from CeBIT: Fresh stuff from the gossip accelerator

The gossip generator TheRegister has some “news” about Rock. I don’t affirm the truth of the article, but nevertheless some interesting statements:

Sun hopes the Rock chip will please the mainstream Solaris crowd and plans to use the product as a complement/ replacement for Fujitsu's version of SPARC that will soon anchor Sun's Unix server line.


With that in mind, we'll believe our own Rock hype if and only if it appears on schedule in 2008. Should that happen, Rock and friends could once again give Sun a performance edge in the Unix market and let it shine.

Whatever they smoke, i want it too.
