Sun announces x64 Hairball edition

Are they serving crow in the Sun Microsystems cafeteria today?

The company announced it will sell and support servers pre-installed with Windows, the software its former chief executive famously and repeatedly called a “hairball.”

Now Sun’s joined the roster of Microsoft OEM partners.

Today’s deal was presented as an expansion of the “strategic alliance” formed three years ago, when Sun settled its antitrust claim against Microsoft. They also agreed to make sure their systems work well with each other when virtualized.

Sun must need Microsoft to compete better against Dell and Hewlett-Packard.
