Sun can't deliver. Starts out with great ideas, overengineers and underdelivers.
The Old Sony's
I started out on an NEC P3 and then went to one of those tiny (at the time) Sony's with the flip down boom mic. I loved the Sony, a fantastic piece of kit that only failed once. I was riding up to Hollyhead from Cambridge to get the late night ferry to Dublin and put it in my tank bag, my magnetic tank bag.
They warranty replaced it. I then got a non-descript Mitsubishi and a Nokia until I got the mother of all cool phones, the Nokia 8810, what a chrome beauty.
I didn't want to change that phone. Now I have a BlackBerry and life is just much more interrupted.

Linkedin is so much better for me
The people I have trouble keeping up with are business acquaintances and linkedin is perfect for that. No BS, just who you know and where they are.
I trird Facbook and it's a waste of time for me. I don't want to spend my time responding to quizes and getting poked - online.
I lived near the border throughout "the troubles", went back and forth across the border every couple of weeks and then back and forth to England as I went to University and then to work. I was asked for a driving licence very occasionally.
Now, we're all peaceful and getting along together, I have to show my passport?
What a bunch of idiots.
Good work FaceBook

What, No Citrix?
What about the Xen boys?
One of my friends in the US had a red Corvette with the plate TOSSER.
He told the DMV that he came from a long line of caber tossers.
Sooner or later....
Sooner or later virtualization will become just another checkbox, a core part of all OS's.
What we really need is a standard API for managing all these OS instances.
