Sun strategy. Grid computing and opensource

It is always good signal when people from outside of Sun are talking about Sun's vision. It means that they like it or understood it (maybe).
Comments:

Rather than predict sectors and suppliers of grid computing, wouldn't it just be better/simpler to give me a login at https://www.sungrid.net/ ? This page has been a placeholder link off http://www.sun.com/service/sungrid/overview.jsp for an embarrassingly long time. I should be able to buy grid like I buy hosting (www.ev1servers.net), DVDs (www.play.com), etc. Sun needs to get outside the mindset that it's customers are all medium/large businesses. SME/startup would like ad-hoc credit card grid accounts via web services. Plug and play.

well, the Reference guide looks like it's already working. There is a running project on java.net . I'll try join it.

I hope that the placeholder will disappear soon.
