I’m here at Startup Camp, which is a blast and I’ll write about it.
But I just heard that we’ve gone public with the Sun
Startup Essentials program.
That page is a little marketing-heavy but I can squeeze it into a sentence: If your
company is in the US, is less than four years old, has 150 employees or
and you’re willing to run Solaris, you can get deep,
discounts on our hardware.
Check it out. Hmph, they don’t say what the discounts are, you have to join
up and log in to see them. Also, it’s a bug that this only applies in the
U.S., I assume we’ll fix that. But still, this seems like A Good Thing.
[Update: They removed the Solaris requirement.]

I'm very interested in this program. Unfortunately I live in Canada. Please rectify this oversight! This program could easily make or break the decision to buy Sun or go a Linux route for our production systems.

Yeah, this program sounds really nice for me too. But my company is in Sweden... =)
