No surprise--Sun shines when it comes to open source

Here's a news flash--of sorts--for those following recent developments in Sun products and services. IT decision-makers appear to care a great deal more aboutwhat Sun is doing around making Solaris open source than they do about what Sun is doing to make utility computing more affordable and available. A check of our BT Trax data shows that over the last 13 months 20 percentof the Sun news consumed on ZDNet.com was aboutthe company'smoves, tentative and otherwise, to make Solaris open-source and to expand their Linux-based product offerings. In contrast, only 3 percentof Sun news activity revolved around Sun's new subscription-pricing model. These findings clearly underscore the fact that most decision-makers are out of touch with Sun's utility computing vision, while staying quite tuned in to the latest in open source software developments.
