The price of software on UltraSPARC IV is key to many customers. As per the latest eweek.com news , Sun & Microsoft gets it right. Pricing per socket is the right way to go rather than pricing per core. But Oracle and IBM are still lagging behind with their pricing policies of their databases.
If only we could get SQL Server on Solaris :-)
