How do acutally define "larger" and "more active"?

I imagine one way it could happen - call it the "Reverse Stallman Gambit" : refer to all OpenSolaris-using distros (except Solaris) as "GNU/OpenSolaris" and claim the GNU community as you own - therefore, it comes down to number of OpenSolaris developers (since it's the kernel) vs number of Linux kernel developers.

That said, I am hard pressed to believe that there will be more machines running the OpenSolaris kernel at the end of 2007 than Linux. Heck, even MSFT is selling SUSE these days ;)

It's interesting to compare Microsoft's laptop giveaway to Sun's Try-and-Buy program as different approaches for stimulating product exposure...
