Thanks for the quotes at Information Week

I always get a little concerned when I walk into the office and my boss tells me, "Congratulations on being quoted in Information Week."  Although I admit my mind is still fuzzy from a week and a half away from work, I am positive that I never sat for an interview with an InfoWeek reporter.  Nonetheless, there is the article in black and white electrons under the title: Sun Shines In Solaris 10, Linux Comparison.  I guess I can't complain about the title can I?

This serves as a good reminder to us all what risks and potential problems can result from blog entries that are poorly written, researched or misrepresented.  Thankfully, although I admit that my original entry and the chart are not perfect, I haven't yet been accused of outright lies or propaganda.

As a Sun stockholder, I can't complain when the company gets more good publicity and attention driven to our products and services.

Read my original blog entry and see the Solaris vs. RHEL 5 comparison document.  Feel free to comment.

Bill Vass (SunFederal President and COO) also makes reference to this in his blog entry.

Thanks to Information Week for picking this up.
