Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin has said it is time for Solaris to simply move out of the way and yield the future to Linux. 'The future is Linux and Microsoft Windows. It is not Unix or Solaris,' he claims, contending that Sun's strength in long-lifecycle apps is giving way to Linux, as evidenced by the rise of Web apps, where Linux holds a decided advantage, Zemlin claims. With capabilities such as ZFS and DTrace, Sun is trying to compete based on minor features, he says. 'That's literally like noticing the view from a third-story building as it burns to the ground.'

Zemlin is a Gremlin
Or maybe he's a Troll
His face looks like a doughnut
And now he lost his plot

He drank 6 pints of lager
And smoked too many spliffs
When he ran out of rizzla
He looked for something bigger
"Linux For Dummies" on his desk
Made for a giant reefa

In this defining moment
With stupor he proclaimed
Today I'll make retarded comments
That make me look to all my colleagues
Like I'm a total f**king prick
