Yes, he is. However, it sounds like are having less and less
time to do Linux stuff, despite developing all their software under Linux.
I guess projects that bring in revenue are more important (which is, after

He said there wouldn't be a Quake for Sparc Linux, despite the fact that

My Pentium is fine at home, but it's nothing like the HyperSparc I've got
at work...
