I understand Sun's frustration, and I'm sure NAND suppliers will respond to this opportunity. However, price and availability of memory products are always related. When both the price and the availability are a major issue, it's not always the fault of the suppliers if the OEM BOM is out of sync.

I find the phrase "lithography death march" very appropriate. We hear that Moore's Law will cease to operate in maybe 2014; wrong in my opinion. It has already ground to a halt and did so roughly in 2007. Further shrinks may be technologically possible. Bigger wafers may also be possible. But - the end user demand has ceased and the price of innovation is now such that the number of players, in both the equipment and fab areas is heading towards literally a handful. It has been an amazing, world-changing ride, but all technologies hit an end-point. This recession marks then end-point for silicon-based logic. I am, of course being a bit inflamatory, just to sparc debate
