Sun Microsystems has shed its all-work-and-no-play image as a business computing company with its recent announcement of the Sun Game Technologies Group. Sun is betting its experience with enterprise software will translate to online gaming, with Solaris and Java powering the servers that make it happen.
Appointed to lead this group is Chris Melissinos, Sun's Chief Gaming Officer. This is not a new position at SunMelissinos has been been Sun's Java evangelist to the gaming industry for some time, and in this interview with GameSpy, he indicates Sun's appetite for the gaming market may be much larger than its traditional role of powering the back-end technology.
