VAR Business: Is There Nothing Stopping Sun

“I’ve been looking at Sun closely, but I still can’t figure out
how McNealy consistently kicks butt…”

“How can it continue to grow in a market that’s shrinking? Sure,
it can take Unix share away from HP and SGI, but how long can it
keep growing using that tactic?

“I’m skeptical that it can continue to grow when it adamantly
refuses to support NT, which is growing like gangbusters. Nearly 76
percent of VARs sell NT Server and 73 percent sell NT Workstation
vs. roughly 38 percent who sell some flavor of Unix, according to
VARBusiness research.”
