Which is why Sun was sold off so cheap and Oracle realises what a bargain 
it has buying the SPARC/CMT stack, which is their core business.

Hopefully with Oracle continuing to allow Sun's R&D into chip tech, 
we will continue to see an alternative to the very limited 
playing field for CPU architecture in the data centre.
