Talk about a buyer's market! Microsoft has joined forces with Hewlett-Packard as HP accelerates its targeted raids on Sun customers by promising fully configured systems and specialized services with lower TCO. HP's latest offensive also includes Novell and Red Hat and comes just weeks after a Sun counterpunch offered HP customers "no-risk migration assessments" that were sure to lead to—you guessed it—lower TCO.
Conjuring up images of coordinated carnivores cutting one out of a herd of antelopes or wildebeests, HP proclaims its new four-way partnership will "provide customers with service offerings, incentives and training programs that streamline the migration from Sun to HP-based solutions, while reducing total cost of ownership."
