Forbes’ “Red Hat = Linux” Spin Angers Sun Microsystems COO

“Headlines like this…really drive me nuts,” writes Sun’s president and COO Jonathan Schwartz in his most recent blog. He is referring to the Forbes Magazine headline on September 1: “Sun Micro Still A Potential Threat To Linux.” Not so, Schwartz thunders, using his deliberately provocative lower case ‘l’: “Sun is not a threat to GNU/linux. Innovation is not a threat to GNU/linux. dTrace is not a threat to linux. Nor is Solaris 10, nor Janus.” What is a threat, then? The answer, according to Schwartz anyway, is: Red Hat.
