Sun and Linux
By eschrock on Nov 22, 2004
If you haven't already, go check out Tom Adelstein's article at LXer, as well as Jim's blog entry. Quite a departure from the usual Sun analysis. It's an interesting take: Sun is (and has been) doing great things, but corporate messaging (both our competitors and our own) has muddied the waters to the point where most people don't know what we're about anymore. I also like the view that Linux and Solaris can and should live in harmony - I'm tired of the "all for one and one for all" attitude when it comes to Linux. It'll be interesting to see if OpenSolaris will sway public opinion, or whether we're too firmly cast into the role of evil empire.
