Rumors of Sun's Demise Greatly Exaggerated
Commodity servers, the rise of Windows Server and Linux, and the inability
of the network computer to make it off the launch pad have all conspired to
pound Sun Microsystems' earnings deep into negative territory. But these
losses are easing
as Solaris, now open source, picks up steam and cost-cutting
measures take hold.
Sun is one of the few remaining innovators and I, for one, would love to see
the company back on track. The company now has a run rate of some $12 billion
in annual revenue -- not too shabby, I'd say.
