The Register: Sun to replace excuses with loads of Opteron gear

The Register speculates about the product annoucements next week. Nice article with some nice quotes:

Sun has now tossed out a few "iPod moments," as it likes to call them. You have the UltraSPARC T1-based servers, an eight-socket Opteron box and the x4500 system. All of these systems are very unique compared to what other Tier 1s are offering, and unique has served Sun well in the past.


We know that Sun insiders are tired of being beaten up in the press. They're tired of being counted out as DEC junior.

Yes, i´m tired of it. For sure.
