I just noticed that the Sun/Oracle Ultra 27 is no longer listed on the Desktops section of Oracles products page. This is a shame because I'm quite pleased with mine.

This sends a couple of messages:

  1. Oracle doesn't think Solaris/OpenSolaris is viable on the workstation
  2. Oracle can't deliver low margin hardware (the prices on these boxes skyrocketed after the acquisition)

It could be a purge while they bump to a new model featuring 6-core Xeons. Yet more than likely, another victim of the merger.
