At least, it is much easier to sell sparc based solutions (Even solaris
solutions) to linux houses than to place where the only game in town is
Windows. Once Sun has understood that, it will find out that Linux is the
best friend they ever have.

See the other end, you simply can't stop linux from spreading, and it is
spreading :-) At this rate you are better to say that you work nicely
with linux (which is true for any Unix) than to say nothing.
