Sun’s CEO Jonathan Schwartz is definitely not your father’s CEO. Not if you father’s CEO was Scott McNealy, anyway.

Microsoft announced today that Sun is going to become a Windows Server OEM.

Microsoft logo“Today’s announcement is another example of Microsoft’s commitment to 64-bit computing,” said Bob Muglia, senior vice president, Server and Tools Business at Microsoft. “The Sun hardware platform is an excellent foundation for Windows-based enterprise solutions such as Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) Edition. Our customers will have an additional choice of Windows Server OEM partners with Sun.”
