I haven’t actually read the book

I ran across the funniest review(scroll to the bottom) for a book on Amazon today:

“I haven’t actually read the book, but the title says it all…the author doesn’t understand economics! “

Are you kidding me?

I haven’t read the book, but I’m giving it 1 star because I don’t agree with the title.

According to the Amazon stats, this book has 107,108 words and 5,136 sentences. It’s not really that long. Don’t you think if you are giving a review of a book, you should, I don’t know. Read it? Crap, even try the first chapter, then tell us:

“Well, the first chapter sucked.”

But 1 star on the title? Come on.

I can’t believe we have to share air with people like this.

Sun Slams IBM over x86 Decision

eWeek Reports:

“BM’s decision not to test, certify and support its enterprise software applications on Solaris 10 for x86 platforms has angered Sun Microsystems Inc. officials, who say the move smacks of monopolistic behavior. ADVERTISEMENT

Larry Singer, vice president of Sun’s Global Information Systems Strategy Office, in Santa Clara, Calif., told eWEEK that the move is even more surprising given that IBM has committed to supporting Solaris 10 on Sun’s SPARC hardware for its enterprise software applications, including DB2, WebSphere and Tivoli.

Solaris 10 for SPARC and x86 is due by the end of March.

“They are telling us they don’t anticipate sufficient customer support for Solaris 10 on x86, and that is the reason,” Singer said. “But the real reason for this move is they just don’t want the volume of Solaris business on x86 to continue to grow. That is not in their interest.”
