Informationweek: Sun Microsystems Moving In The Right Direction

Resurrection is a fight against perceptions. Even when it´s only a small resurrection, as in the case of Sun. InfoWeek has a nice article about the recent situation. There are two remarkable comments:

"People used to ask why Sun spent so much money on R&D and why didn't they become more like Dell," Brookwood says. "Now people are asking why Dell doesn't do more innovative things."


Too many IT buyers still think of Sun as the high-priced alternative--even as it sheds the proprietary label. Perceptions die hard.
