Back it up

This one hits a nerve. Via Jim's blog, I read a Solaris 10 review in PC Mag. One statement stands out, and unfortunately it has nothing to do with Solaris 10.

"Sun is still in flux on its Linux strategy."

That's it. No backup to this statement. Well, they do go on to talk about the Linux Application Environment that will enable users to run Linux binaries on Solaris. But that neither supports nor defeats their claim. Assuming they have a valid claim, BACK IT UP. It just bugs me when journalists (or in this case reviewers) throw these off-topic one-liners out there. If you aren't going to back it up, or if it deviates too far from the topic at hand, LEAVE IT OUT.

For those who actually want to take the time to learn more about Sun and Linux, then check it out.

Unfortunately I have to cut this entry short. Speaking of hitting nerves, I'm off to the dentist.
