Joyent CTO Jason Hoffman on the problems he’s had trying to buy servers from Sun:
More than once though, the Sun people did suggest I just buy
the servers off the web site. “OK,” I said, “and what credit
card should I put that $220,000 order on?”. “You can put in
multiple orders over a few days”, he suggested. “OK… thanks!
I’ll try that,” I said while hanging up the phone.
