William said he is going thru and replacing the Microsoft desktops which were acquired thru StorageTek, and that is going pretty smoothly. However what he is finding most challenging is replacing the Macs. The laughter came when he compared the Mac users to the al-Qaeda.

He spoke about the past and a bit and stated in the past and I quote: "Hello froze over and we partnered with Microsoft." He also spoke about what Sun is doing to prepare for the future working on SOA oriented solutions. William also mentioned over the last few years he has had 50% of his budget cut.
