AMD64 is very very popular in South Korea!

I'm always interested in Sun's stock price --- not only does it have an effect on how our customers perceive us, it has an effect on me too because I'm a shareholder via our Employee Stock Purchase Plan. And one day, when the stock price goes up enough I might be able to cash in some options. I doubt that will happen for a long time though --- my options are at whole-number multiples of the current price :-( Anyway, with the StorageTek acquisition approved in Europe and finalised in the USA the stock went up. Which is always nice to see. And then I noticed that this new release about the South Korea Ministry of Education's National Education Information System buying 1200 Sun Fire V40z servers to seed middle- and high-schools with around that nation. I see this as a poke in the eye for those people who reckon Sun can't make any traction in the educational arena, let alone the non-Sparc market. The best part for me is that these servers (they're buying some Sun Fire v440s and Sun Fire v240s as well) will all be running Solaris 10.
