Hilarious and wise.  Also, the linked ZDnet UK is, for once, well worth
reading to understand why Sun incessantly wastes time dissing Red Hat,

I'd noticed that Sun, in its noisy "blogging" initiative by all and
sundry employees, including COO Jonathan Schwartz, seemed to be mostly a
one-note attack on Red Hat, as if everyone's dumb enough to believe that 
Linux is just one company, and dumb enough to believe Schwartz's
allegation that Red Hat is proprietary software.  (Schwartz actually did
say that.)

This article explains all that.

Interesting you should mention that, according to this


It looks like our beloved Sun source of all coffee, is aligning itself 
to say

A: "Red Hat=Linux, Sun > Red Hat, buy Sun... we sell Solaris, Windows 
and err... Linux".

B: blank

C: profit.

Works for me.
