Yikes. I’ve never understood Sun, don’t think I ever will.
This Infoworld article reports: “Novell (Profile, Products, Articles) last week said it will soon detail plans to include server virtualization technology in its SUSE Linux operating system.

This is quite possibly the most clueless view I’ve ever seen in reference to Solaris 10. This Economics Times article actually says:
” We now have Solaris10 — Sun’s brand of Unix free of cost . This is beating Linux at its own game. Why would anybody go for Linux — paid or free — developed by a dispersed community, when a validated version of Unix is available free? “
Isn’t the dispersed community the main stong suit of Linux? Sun has it’s own interests in mind when developing a “validated version” (whatever that means). Linux developers have developing a good system in mind. I choose good system over satisfying Sun’s investors when it comes to my platform.
