Microsoft At the Linux Collaboration Summit, held last week in San Francisco, an interesting panel discussion took place about Linux' position in the wider operating systems market. Included were Jim Zemlin, Linux Foundation executive director, Ian Murdock, Sun community and developer vice president, and Sam Ramji, Microsoft platform strategy director. Titled "Why Can't We All Just Get Along?", the discussion focussed on Microsoft's somewhat dubious relationship with the open source community.

"Linux and open source software has eaten Sun's Unix lunch and commoditised the hardware that they thought they were always going to sell."

(*Cough*) Take a walk (or invitation) to your local phone company (Verizon, AT&T, etc.) Central Offices and MTSOs, and you'll see SUN (metal) servers everywhere, and you'll be able to count (with one hand!) the number of PC's running Linux.
