The question that comes in to my mind immediately is - Why did Sun/SPARC survive and the other two didn't?

Why did SPARC survive and others didn't? Its called software and a rock solid, proven OS-Solaris! When Solaris 10 arrived, supporting X86 and SPARC, it gave SPARC a new lease on life, and now with Oracle, SPARC is again on the next rebirth.
