the customer is in charge

McNealy (about why the deal came about): “What I think is happening, is that the customer is getting more in charge. I challenge you to find large enterprise customers who are unhappy with this deal”.

What do customer's think of the Sun - Microsoft deal? Does it matter to anyone besides Sun and MS? Does anyone else care? I've just spent ages scrolling through the comments on /. and I can't see much analysis or opinion worth anything. I've read a few press comments and, again, no analysis which sparks my interest.
