In ComputerWorld (and the associated thread in theserverside.com) I read today a different type of article concerning Sun and Microsoft. Now, since I work on the Volume Shadow copy team, I remarked one quote in particular:

In storage, Microsoft and Sun are working together to ensure Sun’s support of Microsoft storage APIs, including Virtual Disk Service and Volume Copy Shadow Service on Sun StorEdge 6920 storage arrays.

Now Sun is joining many other hardware companies that offer VSS and VDS Hardware providers... In a sentence: good news on all fronts.
