Sun Rays and Developers

I have been using a SunRay for about 7 years here at Sun. Nowhere in our Marketing of these nifty devices do we talk to individual developers. There may be a reason, I'm not sure. Mostly, we talk to enterprises. "Thousands of desktops." I get it.  Nobody's going to get rich selling them $250 a pop to one person. Here's the thing though. I know developers. Your lives are all about systems; all over the house, all over the office. Every developer I have ever known feels naked with less than 3 running systems to his or her name. I have four, and I'm not even developing anymore. The thing about the Sun Ray is carrying your desktop with you. Instant accessibility. I have a friend who insists on travelling with one and well, you can. You have to have your own server, it's true [did you see the T2 sale we're having?] but what developer doesn't? Anyway, I was just thinking, it might be worth a look see. Maybe for a home network. Maybe so you don't have to lug a laptop. I'm pretty sure you guys can come up with something truly ingenious.  Just a thought.
