Razor vs. Razor Blades

or is "Sun" going down the wrong path?
Here's the free "Razor". Sounds like an ill fated HP type campaign, "give 'em the damn printer and then charge 'em real good for the ink"
Matter of fact I just hung up the phone with my Dad, who is going to buy a new Canon photo printer for $79.00 after rebates (just love those mail-in rebates) instead of buying replacement ink cartridges for his HP because the new printer is cheaper than the replacement ink.
I'm sure Sun has thought this through and I guess they figure they can generate enough revenue from the maintenance agreements and additional hardware sales to make this all workout for them.
