Sun Microsystems has failed to make the idea of software as a service deployed from a huge central server even though they've been trying to do this for years.
Let's see. One huge computer, a data-center-in-a-box so to speak. Hmmm. Sun Microsystems and Hewlett Packard have been offering computers with hundreds of processors and built in visualized environments for years. They haven't exactly taken over the data center market. Maybe there's a reason for that.
But Bill knows best. I'm sure that Microsoft will succeed where others have failed. No doubt about it.
@What was Microsoft's last original idea? Create an operating system for microcomputers. I have to give Bill credit for that one.
