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.'

And to add to your comment.. Thinking with the logic this guy uses: Since Intel's shares are @ ~$18/share, and Google's is ~$442/share, that means Google must be 25x bigger AND better than Intel.. Hmmmmm. I DON'T think so. Market capital for Intel: $105 billion, while Google's is $139. Sure seems like they're 25x bigger to me ....
