Sun to install Windows Server OS on its hardware

I was shocked, to say the least, because for years these 2 companies have hated each other, now they're partners??

Well, they are constantly bouncing between kissing up and going to end of world battles.
The current love period started a bit earlier with some crosslicensing (office patents and whatever so star office could deal with ms formats, and there was something in return), so it is not a complete surprise, but not a small one anyway.
Btw they were best buddies back in the times also when MS made a JVM implementation, but it didn't last long (and the MS VM 'surprisingly' went offroad just to derail Java, but it is history)

Oh well, I guess when your companies future is in as much jeopardy as theirs... you do what you can to keep your head above water.
