Intel on OpenSolaris

Some nice quotes from Intel here -- Intel: Open source drew us to Solaris: "Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel's server products, said the 'open-sourcing of Solaris' changed Intel's mind about the OS ... [h]e noted that Intel has always been a strong proponent of open source, and applauded recent moves by Sun to make Solaris and Java open source. 'This is a new environment where there [is] a very large Solaris installed base that's moving toward open source.'"

Wow. It's pretty wild to work on a project that has had that kind of impact.
Comments:

Now I wonder why those blokes are working with Microsoft if they are such strong proponents of open source. Lip sympathy, perhaps?

Willy, now honestly, does Intel have a \*choice\* when it comes to working with Microsoft?

Willy ... what's wrong with working with MS?
