IBM “responds” to competition

IBM is surely feeling the heat from our CoolThreads Technology. As I mentioned before, the Sun Fire T2000 servers are flying off the shelf, and you can check out what reviewers are saying.

But here is an interesting article in TechWeb. Snippets:


In a statement released before IBM’s announcement, Sun Microsystems Vice President of SSG Marketing Fred Kohout said it looks like IBM is “on the run – responding to our new products.”

As the two companies claim superior performance and market leadership, Freund said IBM does respond to competition.

“What do they expect us to do, fold up our tent and go home?” he asked.


Don’t you love when your innovations put your competitor on the defensive and they admit it publicly? 🙂
