My First Car!!!
Yes, I finally got one... A Pearl White Maruti Suzuki Swift(II) Vxi. I was too excited about the car and had to wait for a long 25 days to get hold of the car! I booked the car on 26th December 2007 and the dealer told me that the car would be delivered only in 2nd week of Jan 2008, which meant I wasn't getting the old price benefit :( But for the extra 7 grands I paid, I am happy to see the 2nd generation Swift... There are quite a few small changes that have been made over the older swift. They told me that the front bumper was changed (I didn't notice any changes though) and hence getting MGA mudguards fitted would be done later, since the older mudguards did not fit due to bumper changes...

Other changes (that I could notice easily) are a Digital Clock on the dashboard, the new rear tail lamps, the wheel caps and supposedly the lights on the console (I am not sure about these as I haven't been able to compare with an older model). Here are a few pics of what it looks like:

Hello Congratulations on your car.
Do you know what happened to the StorageTek Business Analytics software?
Sun seems to have EOL'd it with no explanation.

@Jonathan:
Thanks for your wishes. I have no clue about the Business Analytics software since I have not kept track of it for the past 1.5 years. Initially the plan was to downsize the product to support only Sun-Storagetek devices but then they planned to EOL it. The reason which was told to us was that the profit the product made was so small that it was just a marginal error component for Sun!
