2 Blogs on OpenSolaris: Berlind, Blankenhorn
By Jimgris-Oracle on Feb 02, 2005
Now this is interesting. First David Berlind at ZDNet blogs a good
piece yesterday about Sun's OpenSolaris
announcements and the patent issues -- Sun gives way more
than an inch, but open source advocates want the whole mile. It's
Berlind's take, obviously, but pay attention to the language he uses.
It's professional. I can agree or disagree, but he doesn't
intentionally inflame. I can read his stuff and carefully consider his
thoughts. Which I always do with Berlind. Then Dana Blankenhorn, also
at ZDNet, points to Berlind's article today -- Memo
to Sun: stop whining -- and expands on the idea but takes a
decidedly condescending tone. He says we're "whining" and he questions
So, two blogs on pretty much the same issue. One I find credible, the other I dismiss outright. The difference? One is substantive, the other is just a rant.
