Neo: All the server players are becoming more integrated selling bundles of computers, network gear, storage and software wrapped in services. The microprocessors are more and more incidental, but its good to see Oracle is giving Sparc a future.

While I applaud Oracles efforts as far as Sparc goes, I don't expect them making any comeback to Sun's former glory days. Those days are simply over for Sun. I really don't know what Oracle was thinking when it bought Sun, do they want to do an Apple in server space? I am not saying that Sparc will vanish but it's technology will most probably get absorbed in to the mainstream CPUs through other channels or keep selling in to some legacy buyers like universities and research centers.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
