Web 2.0 is driving the IT industry

This news is an evidence of the fact that Web 2.0 has the ability to drive the industry. Sun has decided to help companies with virtualization tools. "Sun MicroSystems wants to equip the next generation ofInternet companies with its hardware and software and will offer virtualization products to help them keep costs down, make their data centers more flexible, and give developers multiple development environments".

As people keep using different platforms, they will want to use more and more of Java code. This seems a fairly clever move to me. Also, now they have MySQL, so all PHP-MySQL fans also have to go to Sun.

CEO Jonathan Schwartz's statement - "but I prefer to focus on acquiring new customers, not on the competition" confirms the fact that they also want more users to use their products and eventually become their customers some day.
