Highlights from Scott McNealy

So we listened to Scott, present to us, and again I offer you some belated highlights
"You are core competency!", that means us, Sun's field technologists
"The Market Opportunity we're creating!", about the fact that Sun is the leading Opteron systems provider.
Google has 125,000 CPUs in its grid. We'll sell'em Niagra and solve California's energy crisis. Greg Papadopolous in his presentation stated that Google's electricity costs were the single largest cost to operate their infrastructure, so if Nigara's power consumption works out, its going to be compelling to the web services companies.
Oracle (licensing policies) are "our problem". Oracle are acting in their shareholder's interests
Storage is a feature, not an industry!
"I don't know where my desktop is! - if you know don't tell me, I like being able to say I don't know!", he's using Sun's desktop extranet, with Sun Rays at the desk.
