Short Take: IBM reports strong sales in server line

IBM has sold 1,000 of its new top-end S80 "Condor" Unix servers in the four months since the product was introduced, the company said. The sales rate outpaces the comparable statistic for the S80's biggest competitor, Sun Microsystems' E10000 "Starfire" server, which took two years to reach the 1,000 mark, IBM said. However, Sun's position in the Unix market is extremely strong, and the company is planning a major upgrade later this year.
