"Nestled in a nook in Manhattan's West-side Theatre District and shrouded in an early morning mist, the Equitable Theatre looked quiet and unassuming. However, the stage was set for Sun Microsystems latest unveiling. It seems all the "would-be kings" of software have taken a hit as the IT paradigm shifts toward 24/7 computing faster than anticipated, but today Sun firmly planted its feet in a new direction, and chairman and CEO Scott McNealy led the way."
"'It's more bad news for the competition. After a year in which IBM and HP threw everything they could at us--including old products with new names and new products with super names--we still took market share away from them,' Sun's leader says. Would you believe all the excitement is about a new line of servers? I thought you would."
