Re: How does Sun even have $5 billion in sales?
I know a lot of people who are buying AIX. I know more who are buying x64 with RHEL. I know a few who are looking at Exadata.... which, I suppose, is also x64 and Oracle RHEL. I even know some who are still plugging away with HP-UX. I don't know a single person who is buying new Sparc servers.
I know people who have them, but they are all in the process of moving away and not refreshing anything. They must exist because Oracle is selling that gear to someone.
Not scientific, I didn't run a survey, I am just saying it is strange that they are still selling $2 plus billion worth of new gear a year. What is the name of a large Sparc shop that is still refreshing and adding?
