Jason Hoffman of Joyent/TextDrive tells an all-to-familiar story. I can't say that I'm shocked, since we at Triple Point have had the same problem in the past. But there is some (cold?) comfort in knowing we're not the only ones. We buy, mostly, Dell. We'd love to be in bed with Sun, but since Sun just has no interest, we can't really be bothered. It's too bad. Our customers, combined, purchase and/or run our software on the equivalent of tens of millions of dollars of hardware. With its stock price hovering around $5/share, I'm not sure how Sun gets away with just ignoring these sorts of market opportunities. No doubt, sales and relationships with various pipelines (VaRs) is a complex business. Still, Dell gets it (mostly) right. Can Sun and HP really be so stupid? It seems so. Sell your stock in each.
