It's Nuke La-Loosh--On the mound...

Tom Yager is one of my favorite Tech reporters. He's been around since the days of floppy disks...and he is no pushover.
So when I see a headline like this:
Sun is winning in the server market
followed with a lead that nails Sun's Unix Server market share at 56.7 percent...(Gartner) it makes me stop and say--
That was GREAT...WHAD WE DO !!!#??#!
"It is a matter of patience, vision, and the nerve to stick with that vision even when nobody else seems to see it Sun’s way."
"Sun took the bold step of open sourcing its crown jewel, Solaris, to take the “proprietary” millstone from around its neck. Now Solaris is the only one of the Big Three Unixes that is open source."
"What really puts Intel in the doghouse is Sun’s decision to open the design of UltraSparc T1 for public use. It is the silicon equivalent of open source, and it’s no lip service. Inexpensive and readily available programmable logic puts anyone a few hundred dollars away from being able to mint their own 64-bit Sparc CPUs."
Ah, yeah, it's working.
