Re: Sun hardware is crap being falsely sold at zero discount
Well when you deal with IT vendors that supply software and hardware, they are always trying to get an as big as possible slice of your IT budget pie.
Hence if you as a software company can convince your customer to use low grade cheaper hardware, then there is more IT budget left to be spend on software. Hence you have a chance to get more revenue.
Personally I'd rather spend money on quality hardware than on additional software licenses that aren't really needed. Again the hardware will bring value, added software licenses won't.
