Sun Storage is like a bad joke. After years and years of failures, after acquisitions and acquisitions, Sun management still can give a straight face excuse. They can keep putting lipstick on it. But it's still a pig. If Thumper, ZFS, etc.. are the future, then why did they waste so much money to acquire the leading-edge technology of tape? The StorageTek acquisition was as bad as the Cobalt acquisition. If the BoD gave all those wasted money to shareholders instead, the company doesn't need to play games with stock price by doing reverse-split.
David Yen, who failed to make the acquisition successful, is now running Sparc. If that's his punishment, I suppose Sparc will have a cloudy future.
