Sun’s Schwartz still doesn’t get Linux

“We’re going to continue to look at companies that could continue to expand the features and functions in Solaris to make it competitive against its principal competitor.”

Sounds good. After all, Sun’s Solaris OS is a top-notch product. Schwartz really had me going there — right up to his next line.

“And frankly,” he said, “its principal competitor is none other than Microsoft Windows.”

Huh?! That’s like a company that sells nothing but certified, purebred cocker spaniels claiming that the principal competition for its product is a purebred cat.

But then, Sun has never been able to own up to the elephant-size mutt in the room. Say what you want about Microsoft’s business practices, but at least give Redmond credit for giving up on pretending Linux doesn’t exist.
