Oracle and SUN Solaris Kernel Developer Eric Schrock is bloging more about the Solaris vs. Linux issue and linux kernel moneky Greg is answering on his blog. More here. Elsewhere, Sun is looking into making OOo's XML format an ISO standard and at license options toward opening the Java source code; here are more thoughts on those, by engineer JBQ.

>Why not just post about the good work they are doing at Sun?

This is a collection blogs by Sun employees, where many kernel developers and other engineers talk in detail about their work. Is that enough?

> Nooo, let's post some empty criticism of Linux...

I don't know if you've read Schrocks and Gregs postings, or if you have, you might have forgotten to take of your Linux hat...
I put up my opinions of this dispute here:

And a followup on Gregs posting:

In short: Linux has made great strides in becoming a great Server OS... but Solaris 10 has some features that Linux just doesn't offer yet (or if they are available, they're either in their infancy or only useable by using Kernel patches, where development hinges on 1-2 developers who might get different interests tomorrow...).

Mind you: I'm *not* a Sun employee, and I've never used Solaris, but have been using Linux for the past 7 years.
