Sun attacks Red Hat as being expensive and not fitting of the enterprise, while trying to promote the benefits of Open Source in the enterprise. Says they would attack SUSE if SUSE had any marketshare. Interesting, since Sun's Java Desktop is based on SUSE Linux.

Sun believes the best way to save itself is by attacking Linux. This time it's Red Hat... because they are "arrogant". Sun says Solaris 10 on x86/x64 is much better suited for the enterprise than Red Hat and that Red Hat costs much more than Solaris 10. When SUSE becomes "arrogant", Sun plans to attack them as well. Does this mean the end of Sun's SUSE based Java Desktop product?
