x86 costs and the switch to Linux

Of course, Sun does sell x86 servers a lot these days, but I couldn't find a 24 core Xeon server on their website yet, and once a company has a choice of x86 vendors they won't only look at Sun.

The X4440 is a 4 socket AMD server and supports up to 24 cores: http://www.sun.com/servers/x64/x4440/
The Intel equivalent is the X4450: http://www.sun.com/servers/x64/x4450/
But you'd rather want to get a Nehalem-powered Intel box. Only available as dual-sockets at the moment, they still give the Dunnington a run for its money. An example would be the Sun X4270: http://www.sun.com/servers/x64/x4270/
