A challenge to Microsoft? Not this deal - The Boston Globe: "''It was less than we all hoped for,' Rymer said. He doubted that the Google Toolbar deal alone would bring much new revenue to Sun or many more users to Google. Indeed, Rymer thinks that Google and Sun had hoped to detail more substantial initiatives, but couldn't put the deals together quickly enough.
''What I think is they failed to come to an agreement on some of the other things they were working on,' said Rymer. ''That's why it was so quixotic today.'"
Makes sense to me. I also stand corrected on Google's intention to purchase at least some Sun Galaxy servers.
