Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Sun Microsystems plans to offer support for the Ubuntu server Linux distribution on its T1 server line, the company said at the JavaOne industry conference in San Francisco. "We will be aggressively supporting the fork work [stuff] that Ubuntu has been doing," Sun chief executive Jonathan Schwartz said at the conference. "The ideals of that community are relatively familiar to us." More here, while a comparison of Linux and Solaris on a T2000 is also available.

Ok, Robert, I'm sorry for being a wise guy. At the same time, I never said, implied, or even considered that this business tactic was unique to Sun. I'm not sure why you would imply that it was from my original post. If you want to discuss IBM behavior, then ok. But your post seems to read something in my writings that isn't there. Again, I have no idea about IBM tactics, so I can't make any claim.
