"Surprised as Hell"

Gabriel Consulting Group just released a "vendor faceoff" study of enterprise guys buying x86 systems. Top Enterprise Choices For x86 Servers: "'Perhaps the biggest surprise was the strong third place showing by Sun Microsystems, a relative newcomer to x86 servers. 'We continue to be impressed by just how many customers have Sun x86 gear in their datacenters ... Even more surprising is how consistently Sun is ranked ahead of Dell on almost every survey criteria. This is pretty good progress for a vendor who has only been in the x86 server market for a few years and still offers a limited product line,' the company said in its report. 'I was surprised as hell,' Dan Olds, principal of GCG, told InternetNews.com. -- David Needle, internetnews.com

Very nice. So we are kicking Dell around, and we are surprising people as our servers are showing up all over the place. Golden. How is Kevin McIsaac missing all this? I guess it's not too late, and I guess CIOs care after all, eh? Imagine that.
