Fowler Talks Up Sun's x86 Prospects
"Coming from nowhere, as we are in the x86 market," Fowler explained, "we can do almost anything." As you might imagine, Fowler is absolutely behind the subscription-based pricing that Schwartz is championing for all Sun products, including servers. He is particularly enthusiastic about this approach for a good reason. "If we have Solaris on the box, it gives me the option of picking up margin on the whole software stack."
