Shift of the server battle
Interesting objections at the ITJungle:
This is the belly of the Sun Fire server line, and this is where the new battle is. Having beaten Sun's UltraSparc-III and UltraSparc-IV processors with the Power4, Power4+, and Power5 processors--and on some, but certainly not all, benchmarks showing rough parity with the UltraSparc-IV+ processors with its Power5+ chips--the battle has shifted in the server market. Because now customers are interested in price/performance and thermals as much as raw performance. And Sun's Opteron-based Galaxy servers offer excellent price/performance, attractive thermals, and run Solaris 10, which is arguably the best implementation of Unix on the market and certainly the most open now thanks to the OpenSolaris project.
