That would be silly of Sun. I do not consider Sun, HP, Digital,
etc. as Linux enemies. I think that their success is good for Linux.
And Linux success can only be good for them. They may see it as a
menace, but they are shortsighted. In the long run, widespread use of
Linux may keep their UNIX offerings viable against Microsoft's growth.

Let's not fall pray to a "divide and conquer" strategy.
