Sun. Why?

I tend to take a dim view of Sun Microsystems. I just don't understand what they're for. Would the world be a worse place if they just shut up shop and went away? It's not clear to me that it would.

However, I do find Jonathan Schwartz's weblog entertaining and his enthusiasm goes a long way towards making them interesting. His recent broadside against Dell was most enjoyable.

Every so often, however, he goes one step further. Today's posting - a plea to his employees to quit leaking information to the press - was very brave. I don't think we'd have ever done that. Jonathan: I still don't understand what Sun is for but I take my hat off to you nevertheless.

What Sun is for: driving innovation when folks like Dell want the world to stop so they can milk it.
