Some really heartening developments :
1)The E20K kicks IBM's 32 way power 5 based server and one from HP that has a similar (but in the end - inferior) configuration.
2)The new netBeans gui builder simply rocks!!!
3) netBeans draws level with eclipse
4)Sun acquires storagetek to add to the procom IP acquisition and tarantella(on the secure,remote desktop front).
Hopefully, all these will see sun hitting back hard at its competitors in the quarters to come.
