Jonathans Blog: The Intel/Sun-Announcement

Jonathan writes in his The world just changedblog</a> about the real news:

Which is all to say, just when you thought you'd had the industry all figured out, good things happen - and although the coverage in the mainstream media seems focused on our adding Intel chips to our product line, I'd like to believe the real news is that Intel has agreed to add the Solaris operating system to theirs.

But the media seems to look more on the competion between AMD and Intel than to the real effects of this announcement. With the annoucement, we have partnership with both processor heavyweights. This can be only useful to push Solaris forward in the x86 sphere.
