Today, I got a couple of emails from the program owner for the development hardware offering, who quickly helped me understand that the situation is better than I thought. Specifically, I misunderstood the web content, which says:
Deep discounts on development hardware are available to you! For
additional information please contact your Primary Contact.
My reading of that was that I should talk to our primary contact at Sun. What was intended was that I should talk to Sun’s primary contact within our company. Much better.
In other words, while it would be good for me to see the price list, all I need is for someone within my organization to get the data, which I can. It’s also just fixable with a rewrite of a sentence, and I’m quite hopeful that Sun will, as they’ve promised, will fix this (admittedly fairly trivial) buglet.
