We really want to say kind things about Sun and keep the dialog flowing. Afterall, they claim to be an open-source company. But when we see articles like the one reference here, we have to rethink our position one more time.
So, some unnamed editor from BNamericas.com writes: "Adoption of the Sun Solaris 10 operating system is being led in Latin America by the region's large data centers and SMEs, according to Juan Carlos Barroux, strategic accounts marketing manager for US IT firm Sun Microsystems in Southern Latin America."
Then we see: "SMEs are able to replace a Linux solution without support or one with really expensive support.".
[Ed: Wait a minute. We recently got blasted for writing that Sun said it was trying to kill Linux. The head of the JDS project wrote a vicious blog saying it was not a policy of Sun to kill Linux. So what this? It's you basic flip-flop. - tadelste]
So, Linux becomes a forbidden for those who want to watch a movie legally. Think this is by chance? Think it won't catch on? There is a $300 million plus ad campaign cooking to make sure you equate digital media with EF, and don't question that you are giving up all your rights to pay for the privilege. People are stupid, and by the time they catch on that the EF machine they bought is the main method that they are being screwed by, it will be too late and you won't be able to buy anything else. Trust me, this really is the plan.

In the olden days, there were Class A, B and C networks. These could only be divided up into equal parts, so VLSM, or Variable Length Subnet Masks , were introduced. The old Class C was a /24, B was a /16, and A was a /8. (Check out Understanding IP Addresses if you're not clear on what that means.) That's all you need to know about Classes. They don't exist anymore.
Microsoft's never ending fight to remain relevant while defeating nasty attacks upon its bulwark, which unnecessarily distracts this valiant company from more worthy tasks such as getting a lock on the Internet nearly matching its hold on both the PC desktop and most of the Office type applications. Woe unto them that do not recognize how unworthy they are to desire the fruits that this company so assiduously picked off so many dead, dying, decaying and those still living but consigned to a similar fate. Companies that hold any shred of property (IP or otherwise) that Microsoft desired, becomes theirs. Be warned ODF will suffer the same fate. Though the path may be long and the dead will strewn alongside our skewed path. Be fearful you lackeys, open source, free types we shall not rest until your are gone or if we are forced to we will compromise if we must. But until then: the world belongs to us and anything you own too is ours. Just kidding, I think.
