Sun Pulls Plug on Cobalt Server Line

Sun Pulls Plug on Cobalt Server Line: "In late 2000, Ed Zander (then president and chief operating officer of Sun Microsystems Inc. and now recently tapped as CEO and president of Motorola) said of Sun's Cobalt server line: 'We think the demand for these high-volume, turnkey devices will explode in the next couple of years. Cobalt is our bet for the future.'
That future lasted only three years. This week, the company announced that it will discontinue the last model in its Cobalt product line, the RaQ 550 server, on Feb. 19, 2004, following September end-of-life notices for the rest of the Cobalt line. "

Another $2B down the drain...
