Sun should have gone with Debian.

They could have licensed Xandros for their corporate desktop. With Debian they'd have a good blend of the ability to constantly update and the sturdy Sun upgrading method.

Not to mention it comes with the Cross Over Plugin and the whole OS is designed to replace Windows.
