Solaris takes on Linux
Sun Microsystems President and COO Jonathan Schwartz made a dramatic debut in the blogosphere this summer. Anyone who has met Schwartz knows that he speaks passionately and persuasively about Sun technologies, and I'm looking forward to hearing more of his unmediated voice in his Weblog. One of his early posts ("Competing against a social movement") got me thinking about how I ended up placing my IT bets on Linux (the "social movement" referred to in Schwartz's blog) these past few years and, more importantly, where my platform commitments should lie in the future.
