IBM and Linux, – but what about Sun?
Jonathan Schwartz, provides a very interesting perspective on the pickle that IBM have got themselves into over Linux. Whats even more interesting is that he does not discuss Sun’s simillar predicament! Maybe thats because his series of blogs on this and related topics is building up the background for Sun’s position which is likely to see a return to the promotion of Solaris as a viable alternative to Redhat which is gradually being positioned by Jonathan as a kid of “proprietary solution”, certainly one that locks you into RedHat.
Update: I am not the only one who is puzzling over what Jonathan is up to with his blog. Look at this eWeek article that pulls lots of opinion together, it appears Jonathan is playing a pretty risky game.
