I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake / Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take / Pointing a finger at eternity / I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

The Sun Also Sets

Once, I lusted for a SparcStation more than for a PowerMac. It was a long time ago.

Sun Micrososystems had the best slogan ever for the the Internet age… The Network is the Computer. I remember days when my home computer wasn’t networked but I can’t remember what I did in those days, aside (of course) from the standard angst ridden teenage boy video game playing months.

Sun has been setting for some time, I fear this partnership with one of their greatest foes will mark their end. As Silicon Graphics went before, Sun seems likely to—at best—retreat to a server only space.

“Sun is now a single source for today’s leading operating systems - Solaris and Windows - on the industry’s most innovative x64 systems and storage products. Customers can now take advantage of the virtualization benefits of Windows and Solaris on Sun’s energy efficient x64 systems,” said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems Group, Sun Microsystems. “Microsoft’s recognition of our x64 systems and storage systems is a testament to the superior system design at the heart of our product portfolio.”
