Ashlee, please ignore comment #1 above. Working in the channel (hence the AC post) I get all sorts of stuff from Sun under NDA, and they now say "please keep this to yourselves, we don't want to read it in the Register". That is, they recognise that the Reg is a now a primary source of early information about their forthcoming products, and that must be mostly down to your endeavours.
Sun's quarterly results are beginning to get boring, which is A Good Thing - contrast this with the roller-coaster ride which was the early 00's. As The Reg's chief Sun Watcher, it must be difficult to make these results announcements into interesting news articles.
Still, what with the Semi Coherent Computing and Open Season download programmes, AV is my equal favourite reg author, alongside the fantastic Lewis Page (you won't find an accurate definition of an AK47 on Cnet). See you on the Virtualisation Web Seminar later.
