CIOs, Merill Lynch and the UltraSPARC T1 ...
Merill Lynch (you remember: The former home of Steve Millunovich, who told us serveral times, that we are doomed and we have to cut R&D, the R&D that gave us Niagara. Sorry, could not resist) done a survey of CIOs with an interesting outcome regarding UltraSPARC T1:
According to the December survey, 41 percent of CIOs who already are Sun customers want to buy Niagara servers in the next 12 months, compared to 8 percent in July. And among CIOs in general, the purchasing intention increased from 3 percent to 12 percent over the same period.
"We believe...Sun's turnaround is real," Farmer said.
