IBM Feels the Heat?
By Roman Strobl on VIII 17, 2006
I sometimes really enjoy reading discussions on Slashdot. This one is interesting, IBM is saying that OpenSolaris is not as open as it should be. C'mon, a company that keeps it's own operating system proprietary (AIX) is telling another company how to be really open? I would say: IBM, first open source your OS and then tell Sun what to do, ok? The best way to fight such FUD is by simply telling the facts.
Sun is not a perfect company. But it contributes to open source projects by more code than any other company and as an insider I know there are many great engineers in here who love working on open source projects. IBM must really feel the heat...
